When Rumour and Comment Become the News

Wilson, Jason A., Saunders, Barry J., & Bruns, Axel (2008) When Rumour and Comment Become the News. ABC News Online: Club Bloggery.

Abstract

Many of the dust-ups so far between bloggers and the mainstream media (MSM) in Australia have concerned comment, not news. The kinds of spats we’ve written about previously have been over who exactly has the mortgage on punditry about established stories, social issues, opinion polls and the like.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
