There is a synergy being created between the printed media, TV, radio and the internet. And, for the most part, this is a solidly Catholic synergy, wherein a strong conservative and traditional element is exerting a "gravitational pull" on Catholic media and on reporting of Catholic issues in the secular media.
The Catholic blog presence is not as big as some of the secular and political blogs, but it is growing. I think people are paying attention.
I think awards like these create a greater sense if identity for everyone who reads them.
