Journalism - are journalists themselves opening for bloggers?
A journalist once explained what it is to "be a journalist"... "You see - our task is to create a picture of the everyday as beeing very exciting!" Of course - in a well-organised society like many countries today - news are often of the negative kind.
What bloggers can do is to share their view of the everyday, because unlike the journalist view - the everyday doesn't really need to be flashed up. It only needs to be told.
I also believe mainstream media - be it print or TV - are digging their own grave by "giving the audience what they want". With the choice of other channels - only a little few will stay with the TV set. Most others will search for a niche that tells them "you are important to us - come and see!"
