Last night I came across a post on Bloggings by Boz which linked to a post in Spanish by Goleech mentioning that Mexican president, Vicente Fox, in what must have been a first, was interviewed by a blogger.
I read through the interview, and though it seemed more than sufficiently believable, I was skeptical of the fact that no there were no comments on the post and that none of the major Mexican weblogs had linked to it. So I emailed Eduardo Arcos of ALT1040 to ask what was going on and he said he would investigate.
This morning he posted a link to the Clarin Weblog on Weblogs which said that President Fox did in fact confirm he was “interviewed by a blogger.” But Arcos adds:
The fact is that the interview with Vicente Fox was done for EnterateHoy.com.mx, which was elaborated (with photos and separated into pages) in this article. Amongst the sections of this site, there is something called “The blog of EnterateHoy” that is a link which takes you too enteratehoy.blogspot.com where there is a transcription of the article.
It seems that it's not just the U.S. where “blog” has become a major buzzword for the major media.
