The point of this article is to talk about the effect of blogs on politics. It goes over how the growing role of the internet in politics and the ramifications of the 2008 presidential election. It uses reliable examination of viral videos on popular political blogs to show how it creates a homogeneity in blog-readers.  This is a helpful source for me because it directly relates to my topic of people taking on the opinions of bloggers themselves, rather than form their own. I can definitely using the numbers and figures provided in the data to strengthen my point.
