What Bloggers Know ... er, Kinda

Bloggers and journalists?  The same?  Different?  In terms of what they focus on, you bet there are differences.  Below are some results from a Pew Research report on what each group "covered" in the first week of February.  First, the bloggers, next the journalists.

Bloggers (left, right, moderate, whatever) seemed fascinated by the Tim Tebow Super Bowl advertisement, something that got exactly the amount of journalism coverage it deserved (a little, but c'mon, no more than that).  As far as bloggers go, the Haiti earthquake apparently never happened, and Toyota cars have never been recalled.

And bloggers are going to replace journalism?
