Gatewatching – Chapter 9

This chapter focuses more on blogging and journalism and makes one wonder if the two can be used interchangeably, or if they are two different entities. Some will argue that blogging is journalism, while others will say since bloggers do not have to go through an editor, what they are doing is not journalism.

Bloggers for the most part are free to write about anything and the options are not limited, while journalists on the other hand, have to write about what their editors want them to write about. The creative process is hindered, for they have rules to abide by.
