As a blogger and a journalist, I see a fine line between the two roles. Yes, blogging plays a role in news. I think everyone would agree with that. But, are the two interchangeable? Can bloggers be journalists? We probably all know someone in the industry who doesn’t have a J-school degree, but is a great writer, reporter, editor, etc.

But, can blogging be considered journalism? I guess I’d have to take it on a case by case basis to make a decision. David Cohn at newassignment.net believes that journalism is changing and blogging is playing a role in that change. I just don’t know what I think about it. What about you?
