Local media getting story ideas from blogs?
It's pretty common for media outlets to be taking stories from one another, but now they're taking their tips from bloggers?
My buddy Jon has suddenly seen something posted on his site appear in the Bulletin. I posted a note linking to Jon's original post about video game companies in Bend. He did a follow up story the next day, profiling the company's founder. And wouldn't you know it, a story appears in the 10/25/03 edition of the Bulletin entitled "Sony filters out separatist group from Bend designer's video game." Go figure.
I wonder how many folks in the Central Oregon media read our blogs? Is there anybody out there? E-mail me privately as I'd like to hear from you.
