Political blog readership close to newspaper readership

That is not the headline the newspapers used. Only 62% read a newspaper regularly. I generally do not often agree with James Joyner at Outside the Beltway but in this case I do.
So, we have a survey showing that 44 percent of Americans read political blogs occasionally and 23 percent read them several times a year. Among those who do, 78 percent find them as accurate or more accurate than the mainstream press and 82 percent find them as valuable or more valuable than the mainstream press. Yet the story is framed as blogs being inaccurate and less widely read than some might think?
