Blogging [electronic resource]: Serious Media or Just a Rant?

Video Education Australasia
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
The rise of the Internet has meant that ordinary people can be both producers and distributors of information and opinions through the use of a Weblog (blog). But with more than eight million blogs already in existence, how many bloggers are really being heard? And is what they have to say serious, well-researched journalism, or just a rant - and should it matter? This program profiles the emergence of blogs, looks at their negatives and positives, and debates whether they are an opportunity for alternative voices to be heard, or just uncensored tirades. Produced in Australia.
