Example text

In some cases, changes have been highly succesful. One example is the Huffington Post, a blog that became a portal with large traffic, overpowering some of the progressive content on the web and in print. Common Dreams, Truth Out, Raw Story, Chirping Chimp, Buzz Flash, and Tom Paine, are all new developments over the past seven years, and all have thriving audiences. Like AlterNet, these sites, are still new versions of old media, but in many ways represent innovative new takes on the old model of alternative journalism.

This confrontation of institutional rigidity and social fluidity results in perennial endeavors of institutional “reform,” and movement publications are no exception.

The universe of progressive blogs has anywhere from two to four million visitors. They are a powerful force in the echo chamber. Some do topnotch journalism. For example, Talking Points Memo has a large influence and uses its readership to greatly enhance its research and accountability capacity. The Daily Kos is perhaps the most famous of the blogs with hundreds of diarists, and the largest blog traffic. FireDog Lake got front-page NY Times credit for its live blogging of the Libby trial23 and for covering the story in depth and with nuance.
