Abstract: This study used time-series analysis of news coverage and blog discussion about the Iraq War from mid-2006 through late 2007 to examine intermedia agenda setting and agenda building. The amount of newspaper and television coverage was positively correlated with the number of posts on “A-list” political blogs and personal blogs. Limited evidence was found that A-list political blogs influenced news coverage. Military deaths influenced news coverage, but White House news releases were less influential.
