Suzy Menkes knows Why Bloggers are becoming Influential

“Magazines, which during the past easy-money, heavy-advertising decade measured their clout by how many editors they could place in the front rows, are feeling the financial pinch. If the magazine crowd can get in and out by Sunday night, that is only three days of limos and hotels to pay for, rather than the usual five.  Then there are newspapers, facing economic turmoil and prepared to take desperate measures — like abandoning the first amendment of journalism that says a reporter must be there. Now it is supposedly acceptable to review collections, blogger-style, via the Internet. (Meanwhile, in an ironic switch, bloggers are sitting front row, filling spaces left by journalists with zero travel budgets.)”
