Hey, bloggers, it's official: You're journalists
Fortune's Adam Lashinsky says (are you sitting down for this?) bloggers are journalists. He goes on to say, "Let’s just say I’m in the minority. Old-school readers can’t stand these folks for their perceived lack of standards, and the new crowd (my panelists were no younger than I am) wants nothing to do with fuddy-duddy readers. I’m willing to make the same prediction about blogging that I made 10 years ago about 'Internet' companies: In 10 years there won’t be an distinction. Blogging will be part of the multi-media spectrum." Another member of the MSM comes to his senses.
