  • Not by the hair on my chinny, chin, chin

    As a former professional reporter and editorial writer, I personally object to bloggers getting same access and priviledges as real reporters.

    • Spell check

      Sorry, spell checker wouldn't hook to it's server this morning, so I know there are errors, which I would not have allowed in the newspapers. Privilege, so there.

    • Get over it

      Somehow the use of the word professional, as in "professional
      reporter and editorial writer," here seems absurd. There never has
      been, and never should be, any such thing as a professional
      reporter or editor. Any knucklehead that can get a low-paying job
      rewriting press releases at Trade Drek Weekly would fall into your
      "professional" category. The difference between a mainstrram
      media reporter and a blogger is only in how good their last post
      was.

    • Bloggers are often professional reports and vice versa

      The distinction between bloggers and journalists has become a blur -- merely witness the journalists that choose to report through their blogs.
