Wall Street Journal Using Blogs to Cover Microsoft-Yahoo News Today

Big news in the tech world today with Microsoft formally entering a bid to buy Yahoo.

Scanning through the various coverage, it was obvious that many large publishers were using their blogs to quickly cover this fast-moving story.

A great example was the Wall Street Journal’s take on it and the comprehensive use of blogs ( all powered by WordPress ). They linked to many of their blogs including Kara Swisher’s post on allthingsd.com, the BizTech blog, and the Wealth Report blog.

As you can see from the screen capture below (I marked the blog links with red arrows), the blog coverage was a big piece of the overall presentation:

    Will the MSN use WP to publish their for-print news articles, too, next?

    Best wishes,

    There are lots of large publishers out there who are using WP for the entirety of their publishing efforts – including the print articles — or are considering moving in that direction. Britain’s largest regional paper, Express and Star, is one such example: http://www.expressandstar.com .

    Ya, some people really like them, other do not. If you click the little link in the upper right corner of the preview window, you can disable it for this and all other sites.

    cheers.
