Blogging and journalism, redux

Fascinating give and take on this subject in the Los Angeles Times, where Elon College J-prof Michael Skube wrote about his dislike of the idea that bloggers might do journalism: Blogs: All the noise that fits.

Bloggers, understandably, are annoyed, and today j-prof/blogger Jay Rosen answers Skube with a barrage of facts: The journalism that bloggers actually do. Rosen finds that Skube doesn't seem to even read blogs, and one that he mentioned was actually added by an editor. Added bonus: Rosen provides a list of "Blog sites doing exactly what he says blog sites don't do: "the patient sifting of fact, the acknowledgment that assertion is not evidence ... the depiction of real life.""
