I originally thought I wasn't going to be able to go to this but I have moved a couple of things around and will hopefully be able to make it now.

Any difference blogging makes is to those who seek out information and in that respect is likely to result in providing a) another perspective and/or b) details previously unknown.

Blogs are not the mainstream news. The mainstream news has a far wider audience and is far more accessible. Bloggers are able to show up lazy journalists so they probably help sift the wheat from the chaff.
