More on the Role of the Blog

Bourque links this morning to an Infozone editorial that describes the role of the blog as the "untold story" of Canada's Federal election:
Bloggers have been breaking stories, doing in-depth research, and in many cases putting the main-stream-media in Canada to shame.
No disputing that analysis. The days of a campaign's ebb and emphasis being determined by the national dailies and nightly broadcasts seem over, and [as Scharma notes below] that is no mean feat. Still, my post below wonders if blogs might be used beyond their current (and, arguably, more supplementary) role in shaping how the message gets crafted and, more directly, which candidates succeed. Questions worth pondering.
