So what did PEJ find? That there is more value in "a quick summary of key results for those wanting the headlines and deep veins of data that users can mine on their own" than "rich narrative story telling and snap punditry." That news organizations still aren't sure what to do with multimedia. That exit polls are more important than ever, because regular citizens can now be their own editors. And that when the system works, as it largely did on Nov. 7 (yes, there were exceptions), bloggers don't have much to do. Or to put it another way: "Despite the intrigue they brought to the problems and media mishaps of the 2004 election, bloggers were caught somewhat empty handed by the relatively error-free election of 2006."
We're hurt. Anyway, the report is here, if you want to have at it.
