Bloggers are the new journalists. David Coursey’s “You Be the Judge: Are Bloggers Journalists?” (http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidcoursey/2012/01/02/you-be-the-judge-are-bloggers-journalists/) outline of a judge’s official definition of journalism does not apply to all bloggers or journalists. But blogs are a product of what a writer experiences and their particular view on a subject. Whether they have college credentials or not does not take on importance if they are writing truthfully. When comparing truthfulness in journalism to blogging I assume that journalists are making a choice to report what they want their audience to read, whether it is truthful or not. When I read a news article (aka journalism product) I do not automatically believe the content to be fact. Blogs have free reign in reporting what the writer wants to broadcast, whether it be true or not. Sources are key. “Journalists” who report fake stories for Star magazine are not as reliable as a reporter for Time. Bloggers with a knowledgeable background of a topic or field are more reliable than a blogger who is writing purposeful lies. I do not see a difference. Journalism and blogging are both writing content interpreted to make a point or report a story.
