      Google and twitter are seen as tools for accessing information, but not as producing unique news/stories themselves.

    Interesting top 10 list. At first I was surprised FOX News Channel wasn’t above CNN or MSNBC because FOX crushes both these networks in the ratings (it’s not even close).

    Then I considered perhaps a majority of bloggers are liberal leaning Democrats who rely on these outlets for their news so the list makes perfect sense.
