“This election has been set by the pulse of blogs”

WBEZ recently started carrying the CBC’s As It Happens evening news show. As a result, I’m following this Canadian election more than I did in 2002(?)

Stephen Taylor (self-described Conservative Party Pundit) talks about the role of blogs in the election. (via Instapundit)

For those of you just catching up, this election has been set by the pulse of blogs….Indeed, all three federalist parties in Canada during this election missed the boat on blogs.

He goes on to enumerate some of the election stories broken by blogs:

We broke the income trust scandal on our blogs and were aghast when the CBC gave a summary view of the story and called it an exclusive….Other stories broken by bloggers during this election include the potential truth behind the international spat orchestrated by Paul Martin, Ralph Goodale’s request for a sole-source contract for Earnscliffe, Ralph Goodale’s faxscam, David Smith’s Abotech affair, and Tony Valeri’s land dealings among others.
