The article discusses the impact of blogs on journalism in China. The author observed that blog users can provide a lot of information and even clues that will lead to a big story. However, few blog users have the time and sources to go further with the reporting. Most often blog users also lack the ability to be a neutral observer, as journalists try to be. Based on the organizations in China that examine the growth of Internet use and blogging, they assessed that 125 million people use the Internet and by the end of summer, blog users were said to be reaching 75 million of them.
