WISH-TV Reports On Political Rise Of Blogs In Indiana
WISH-TV's Jim Shella featured a report this evening on the rising influence of political blogs in Indiana. Shella spotlights Taking Down Words' Jennifer Wagner as part of the story. TDW was one of the first political blogs on the local scene, and is probably the most read political blog as well. Oddly, Shella featured another blog, FrugalHoosiers.com, which was pretty much a complete unknown blog on the local blogging scene prior to Shella's report. It's obvious Shella is trying to tout a Republican-leaning blog to counter the growing influence of TDW. Judging by the content to date, TDW's dominance is no more threatened by that site than it is the other site known as FixIndyNow. Looks like the Republicans need to go back to the drawing board again.
