Does Use of the Term Blogger Give Print Journalists an Advantage Over Bloggers?
While reading Syntagma editor John Evans' August 6, 2007, post headlined "Journalism or blogging?", the following paragraph stood out: "By tagging ourselves as bloggers, we hand a monumental advantage to the print journalist. We can be dismissed as clowns and unprofessional bag carriers."
There probably are many "bloggers" that care what professional journalists think of them but I'm not one of them. I was a journalist for many years and have friends who still are. I have no inferiority complex when it comes to them or any other journalist.
Having said that, I recommend "Journalism or blogging?" I'm all for good discourse on the subject.
