Blogger or Journalist? Evaluating What Is the Press in the Digital Age

From the Introduction: The days of relying on the newspaper delivery boy to deliver information to households are long over. The Internet and mobile phone technologies have changed how information is gathered and delivered in ways that can't be overstated. They have allowed people worldwide to gather, share, and access news as it's happening. The Internet and sites such as Facebook and YouTube have made it possible for anyone to reach a broad, global audience and for anyone with a computer to be a news provider. There is an enormous amount of content available online, on just about any topic. Viewers and readers must weed through this information to find sources that they trust and that they can rely on, in the same way that people read their daily paper or watch their favorite television news broadcast. The difference is the people who write for newspapers or television news are journalists-people whose job it is to research and deliver news to the public. When you go online, you find content from lots of different people, many of whom are not actual journalists, but interested citizens who want to share information with the public, much like journalists do. These non-journalists include writers of blogs and producers of independent news stories-people who are not working for official media outlets like established news channels or publications. Here, we will look at the differences between journalists and this new breed of news providers. We will discuss what professional standards journalists must follow that bloggers are not bound to, as well as what laws protect journalists but do not offer the same protection for non-journalists. Also discussed will be the roles different types of news providers serve in society, and how our definition of journalism is changing. The purpose is to help consumers of online news better understand where the news they read is coming from, what news they can trust, how to tell the difference between fact and opinion, and how to put together everything they read to form their own ideas about current events-and then perhaps even to share their ideas in their own online publications or blogs.
