The Liberal Blogosphere Overtakes Cable TV News

Chris Bowers over at mmdd.com has done a comparison of viewers of cable news and readers of liberal blogsites and found that:

fifty-seven liberal blogs combined have already equaled, if not surpassed, the three cable news networks combined as a source of news among Americans under 55. Without any doubt, the blogosphere in general now far surpasses the three cable news networks as a source for news among Americans under 55.

He had not expected it for another year.  We - writers, commenters and readers - are changing the way news is reported and taken in.  We don't know yet how it will change the actual face of politics.  We had an ingling last year but next year will be interesting indeed.

How many of us visit several of the sites and are being counted several times?

Ben,

If I understood Chris' piece, they were able to factor in those 10% of fanatical readers who check many websites each day.
