Friedman, Jacob. “Blogging vs. Journalism: The Ongoing Debate.” The Next Web. 10

Aug 2010. http://thenextweb.com/us/2010/08/18/blogging-vs-journalism-the-ongoing-debate/.

This article agrees with the idea that bloggers are not considered journalist. The author mentions in the article that in order to be a journalist one must go get interview people, get some facts and then write about what they learned. The best fact that is mentioned it that journalism is not an opinion. Journalism is supposed to give unbiased facts; it is not suppose to incorporate the opinion of the writer.  Blogging is sometimes a stepping-stone for journalist. They start off writing about things they are passionate about. Author mentions that journalists are not better than bloggers but they are both in two different categories. The lines between journalism and blogging can sometimes be difficult to distinguish but it is still present.
