Are bloggers journalists?

David Patrick Columbia talks about the media establishment attacking bloggers, and why he thinks this is wrong.

Question: Are bloggers journalists?
Graham Hill: Yeah. I guess it’s just a broader concept of what “journalist” is. I think traditional journalists that are well paid and have the time to really fact-check, and spend a lot of time looking into a story; they’re still very important. Hopefully more and more bloggers can do that. So I don’t know. It’s just different types of writing.
