Blogging in Lebanon

The conflict between Israel and Lebanon has spawned a host of weblogs, many of them in English reports the BBC.

They offer a variety of diary-style reportage, eye-witness accounts and photographs, and intense scrutiny and analysis of the coverage of events by traditional media.

Not only can bloggers respond and interact almost instantaneously, they can also use digital photographs, provide clips from TV reports, link to podcasts and make use of satellite mapping imagery.

They are also influencing media reporting as well.
