After lagging behind the eightball News Ltd has recently smartened-up their online site. And as with Fairfax, they've introduced a suite of blogs to their website.
Under the label Blog Cabin News houses twenty-three blogs, whilst Fairfax's Blog Central has twenty-six blogs. Actually News Ltd has another hundred or so blogs scattered around a site which lacks optimum blog access. Equally, Fairfax needs to give more visibility to their home page blogs link.
Otherwise I'm unsure if simply running a news item with a comment facility qualifies as a blog. Still it's good to see the MSM adopting blogs, the so-called citizens journalism.
