A Blog with strong political slant driving robust readership.
Diary of a Republican Hater penned by evilsax (not his real name) with more than 10 million page views seems to be drawing a lot of attention.
Highly opinionated political blogs are rapidly becoming a strong presence in the campaign landscape.
The question many people ask is when political bloggers holler in blogosphere, do political reporters listen to them? The answer is, yes, they do.
From the last few years blogs are becoming increasingly popular. Blogs also seem to have ample impact on politics and political campaign strategies.
What could be the reason?
“People who closely follow both political blogs and traditional news media tend to believe the content in blogs is more accurate,” says a prominent political scientist. “People in general suspect habitual bias in the traditional news content.”
Blogs that are news sources with sharply incisive political opinions and in-depth economics impact analysis gain better readership. Diary of a Republican Hater is just that. With more than 10 million page views so far evilsax seems to be drawing people’s attention.
Evilsax stands out from the crowd. That is because he has decided he is opinionated and sticks with it.
He cites sources, an important element to be considered if people must take him seriously.
By citing sources a blogger builds readers’ trust.
With government shutdown making big news recently, unveiling of a two-year budget agreement by Rep. and Sen. is hot in the media.
The agreement boasts of a modest deal promising to avert another government shutdown.
With a heading “No Grand Bargain”- evilsax after citing various sources gives his own incisive commentary on the story.
Bloggers use blogs as their tools to bring main information to the public. The increasing number of expert blogs is considered a good source of in-depth analysis.
The blogs that are news sources with sharply incisive political opinions gain readership.
The vociferous slant many blog commentators get in their articles or blogs are one of the reasons why many national newspapers abhor bloggers and make efforts to tear them down.
Such battles could also be a reason why blogs are popular.
With media increasingly wanting to define bloggers negatively, evilsax looks to getting good traffic.
For a long time political bloggers were not taken seriously for good reason – they were amateurish. Political blogs were written by people with narrow skills. Presentations were just rehashes of existing information.
But when you read Diary of a Republican Hater, you come to know it is written by a person with vision and foresight about the latest political and economic developments.
