Good question. If I can plug a bit more of my own stuff...
Thelwall, M. & Hellsten, I. (2006). "The BBC, Daily Telegraph and Wikinews timelines of the terrorist attacks of 7th July 2006 in London: a comparison with contemporary discussions" Information Research, 12(1) paper 84 [Available at http://InformationR.net/ir/12-1/paper284.html]

Thelwall, M. (2006). Bloggers during the London attacks: Top information sources and topics. WWW2006 blog workshop, http://www.blogpulse.com/www2006-workshop/papers/blogs-during-london-attacks.pdf

And a bit relevant is...
Thelwall, M. (2007). Blog searching: The first general-purpose source of retrospective public opinion in the social sciences? Online Information Review, 31(3), 277-289.

Thanks for the additional references.

I got here via languagehat and was pleasantly surprised to find someone writing about blogs.

I wrote my master's thesis on blogging, and while that particular paper probably has no relevance here, I did spend a lot of time surveying the literature -- and I put my notes up on the web as I went. I think you've hit all the big names, but if it will help anyone, there's a hyperlinked discourse history and a (now somewhat outdated) Top 20 list over at http://www.ourboldhero.com/research.

I'm a big fan of Stephanie Hendrick, and also do a little analysis myself. I found it highly amusing that broadcast news is considered "sober discourse."
