Point proven?

My point is that bloggers, like journalists, are actually begging to be manipulated, under the right circumstances. It's human nature to feel good about being singled out as an influential reporter/commentator.

I don't use manipulation in a terribly negative sense. All forms of promotion, even the basic news release, are attempts to manipulate media outlets into generating news about something. Giving people a sneak preview is just one of many ways of getting a buzz going, and it's not such a bad idea.
