2004: YEAR OF THE BLOG

Although the term “weblog” was coined in 1997, 2004 is the year the blog achieves critical mass. Salam Pax, the “Baghdad blogger”, becomes popular during the Iraq war, while in the US, [b]Fox news anchor Dan Rather resigns[/b] after bloggers discredit one of his stories. [emphasis mine]
