Technorati has teamed up with CNN as Sifry has a regular spot on CNN to discuss what the blogs are saying regarding the Democratic National Convention and hopefully will be expanded to the election as well.

on Sunday, July 25, we'll launch a new section of our site for political coverage: politics.technorati.com. This site will make it easy for bloggers, journalists, and anyone interested in politics to see the postings of the most linked-to political bloggers, to track the ideas with the fastest-growing buzz, and to monitor conversations in thousands of other political blogs. CNN.com will link to this site, and we'll be updating the CNN site with the latest from the blogosphere.

Just goes to show you how far blogging has become when a major news channel like CNN uses it as a resources of what people are really thinking/talking about.

See the press release for more details.
