Publisher's Summary

The term 'blog' is short for 'Web log', an online site with time-dated postings, maintained by one or more posters, that features links and commentary. That's the most basic definition, but it is like saying a car is a means of transportation featuring four wheels. In Blog, syndicated radio talk show host and best-selling author Hugh Hewitt helps you catch up with and get ahead of this phenomenon.If you doubt the influence blogs have in society, think again. Better yet, just ask Senator Trent Lott regarding his comments at Strom Thurmond's birthday celebration. Ask New York Times editor in chief Howell Raines about reporter Jayson Blair's fabricated stories. Ask Dan Rather and CBS about President Bush's National Guard documents faxed from a Texas Kinko's. Or ask John Kerry about his battle with Swift Boat veterans. All of these major stories were fully covered by the mainstream media only after their exposure in the blogosphere.Until now no influential blogger has written a definitive book about this phenomenon, but in Blog, Hugh Hewitt helps you position yourself and your organization at the forefront of this information reformation.

This is NOT a book about Blogging at all

This book has two specific themes that run through the whole thing: on one hand it's a thinly-veiled right-wing political rant and on the other it's a self-congratulatory vanity piece. It most definitely isn't a book about blogging.
