Blogger Power

In this story, bloggers have literally "overthrown" CNN's chief news executive, Eason Jordan, because of remarks he made at the recent World Economic Forum in Davos. A number of bloggers just happened to disagree with his views and began an online campaign that led to his resignation.

Whether you agree with these particular bloggers or not... can we look forward to a day when Kuwaiti bloggers have this much power?

  2. Why not? It depends on the agenda of the blogs and what kind of political following they attract.

    I think that bloggers with valid political views and convincing agendas in their blogs, can serve to create a community which lobbies for change.

    Anything is possible.

  3. نعم زيدون.
    كما كان للقبس دور في تغير لجنة ما تسمى الوسطية ، كذلك سيكون لكم دور في تغيير الكثير في البلد. كله يحتاج وقت و قليلا من المثابرة و الصبر. المهم ان لا تملوا و لا تيأسوا. و خصوصا و أنت تتحدثون مع الأجيال الشابة التي بيدها مستقبل هذه الأمة.

  5. Yes, I am very confident of the impact, it is a matter of time.

    I believe it would be more on a social and psychological level rather than a political or economical level.

    That being said, the result of changes in first two would impact the latter two.

    To get concrete changes, the blog, or blogger has to challenge the mental and physical characteristics of the readers. That is not the case yet. It is developing, but slowly. So again, be patient and you will see the results.

    Amazed that I did not say one negative thing in my comment, arn't you? well I said the word negative in the previous sentence, but that does not count of course, does it?
