Blog-MSM Synergy: Pierre Paper Builds Local Story from Madville Times Post

Back at you, David!

Pierre Capital Journal political reporter and blogger David Montgomery isn't afraid to acknowledge that he gets good story ideas from the blogs. Today he tips his hat toward my article last week on the patterns of commuter income flow in South Dakota. Montgomery found the Bureau of Economic Analysis data I discussed so interesting that he whipped up a big story for his paper (not the blog, but the news that pays his rent!) focusing on what those data say about his neck of the prairie around Pierre.

Blogs don't exist solely to compete with the mainstream media. We can work together, putting more eyes on more problems, sharing and expanding ideas, and building stories and understanding together.

David, you're welcome, and thank you for the acknowledgment!
