"Looking at the second issue, we can think of part of the propaganda model wrt content found in blogs."

Absolutely. This is very very obvious if you read the blog-evangelists in detail. Many of them make their incomes in one form or another by selling services to big corporations (or want to!), or as partisan political operatives. It's perfectly within the model regarding structural influences. Note, for example, the incredible howls of outrage over recent issues of financial disclosure of blogs with regarding to campaign finance or corporate advertising. Compare the dismissive treatment of extreme conflicts of interest. It's all making very clear what influences are paramount.
