BLOGGING: A discussion of "degree of risk" as definition of blogger vs. journalist

� Ground zero for credibility in blogging and journalism | Between the Lines |

ZDNet columnist David Berlind is proposing that one distinction between bloggers and journalists (if you assume bloggers are NOT journalists), is that bloggers may tend to be willing to take more risks in the writing. He suggests they may be willing to post with less rigorous fact checking than a traditional journalist. He suggest that with blogs increasing the velocity of writing, sources, including PR professionals -- are going to have to get used to responding more quickly or risk seeing the posting of incomplete reports.
