Dude! We're legit!

Too legit...too legit to quit (sorry, had to channel MC Hammer for a second).

Yahoo is placing Blogs side-by-side with news.

I'm sure I'll be getting a call any day now. This site is definitely at least as informative as that of my former employer.

I still remember the argument I had last semester with Jeannie, Kevin, and a couple of other SDMers who claimed blogs were not journalism. They shall eat their words, I told them then, and I still believe so now. It's a gradual process that'll take a few more years, but the two will become interchangable.

I do hope, that real journalism, as that of NY times, survives. I really do want to read something written by professionals, who can both check their sources and write clearly. Most bloggers do not bother and cannot, respectively.

By the way: all all diaries journalism, if they are public?

As I mentioned before, I believe blogs are akin to the op-ed page of a newspaper

Mane the Mean said...

I do agree with Paul B. Some blogs are close r to the "reader's comments" than op-ed (at least using the terminology of NY times).

Some are reader's comments, some are op-ed, some are as good as any bit of journalism by Tom Friedman, Maureen Dowd, and the other professionals. It's just nice to have options.

Ilana, did you see this one:
