I’ve ranted on an on about this in the past, but over the years I’ve complained that the vast majority of bloggers are simply too unprofessional to claim themselves to be anything but the incompetent tea boy (or girl) of a press room. (There are of course, exceptions that prove the rule!)
Yet, the question keeps coming back at me time and time again.
In a recent interview for an as yet unpublished paper, I was asked the following:
Even though you are working in what many see as a journalistic medium, you do not consider yourself a journalist. Why is this? Why do you think that blogging is not a form of journalism?
Now I put the question to you. Is blogging journalism? If it’s not, why not?
