The author says that blogging is not considered journalism because there are certain credentials necessary for a person to be considered a journalist. He says that the lack of tools and experience prevent bloggers from being journalist. He gives the comparison that calling a blogger a journalist is like any person who takes a picture a photographer. Journalists give facts and present the information they have received in an unbiased manner unlike bloggers. Bloggers tend to state their thoughts and opinions rather than just sticking to the facts. Although he says that blogging is not considered journalism he does say that it has impacted journalism. He states that bloggers have given hints to journalists about unknown issues found in the world. After weeks or months of bloggers writing about a particular issue journalist take notice and present it to the public eye.
