Blogs and Mainstream Media

David Sifry posts an interesting chart comparing the number of inbound links (which are a strong measure of influence) to top blog and non-blog sites. Only Boing-Boing makes it into the top 10, but that puts it ahead of USA Today, Fox News, Reuters, SF Gate, Salon, and MTV. Other popular blogs are interleaved on the curve of influence with well-funded, heavily staffed, traditionally journalistic sites. Power to the people, or the death of journalism? Fascinating either way.
