I think there is a common misconception that bloggers are journalists. It bothers me a lot as such comparison lowers the status of journalists who actually do study journalism and do take degrees to specialize on that. Meanwhile, anybody can claim to be a blogger nowadays. I don’t mean to lower of the status of bloggers either who do amazing work but there should be clearer borders between the work of journalists and bloggers.
