"It's not whether bloggers are journalists, it's which are"
The San Francisco Chronicle has an interesting opinion piece today:
There is ... a subset [of bloggers] that fits the definition [of journalist] just fine: These bloggers find news or comment on it. They report fairly, if sometimes hyperbolically, and they editorialize on what they learn. They're identifiable and reachable, not hiding behind a virtual wall that allows them to be safely irresponsible. They allow interaction with readers -- critics and supporters alike. .... Over time, the verdict won't come from a judge or a commissioner or a supervisor. Consumers will decide which bloggers are journalists based on what they're willing to read and what they're willing to trust.
