What People Want

Here are some tables from the PEJ comparing the main topics being discussed on the blogosphere to what is being covered in the mainstream media for last week.

I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on these:



  1. It’s interesting that of the five topics, not a single one overlaps on blogs and mainstream.

  2. Looks like whoever made the prediction that the MJ media frenzy would die within another 2 weeks was right on target. I surprised Sotomayor did not top the blogs or the same for Palin and the mainstream media.

  3. Of everything I have heard about Health Care, I don’t think the average person could explain the pros and cons of Obama’s plan. Also, Cat research? robots? Richard Jefferson wedding? what makes those stories so interesting and newsworthy?
