Survey: For big news, consumers bypass blogs

CNET News.com: "For many Americans seeking news during important events, blogs are just about the last place they look, relying instead on traditional outlets, a survey says.
Fifty percent said they turn to traditional media like television, radio and newspapers as their primary source for information during major events such as hurricanes over 'emerging media,' according to a survey of 333 business professionals and 1,167 consumers between the ages of 25 and 64. The survey was sponsored by LexisNexis.
The survey characterized 'emerging media' as Internet sites by citizen journalists in the form of blogs, podcasts or Internet-only publications. Internet news sites, such as those grown from newspapers or television networks, were grouped with traditional media or broken out into their own category."
