: The frequently clueless Editor & Publisher, voice of the newspaper industry (:cough:), is without clue again today with a piece that advises:
Blogs are a horrible way to deliver journalism. Forget them.
Near as I can tell, this is written by a young person named Graham Webster who says he blogs but gives neither his age (which is relevant) nor his URL (ditto). Transparency, people, transparency. Still, you don’t have to old to roar like a dinosaur. He misses the point: Blogs aren’t about big publishers blogging; they are about the public publishing. Webster admits that he reads blogs to get story ideas. Ding! Ding! Ding! You read them to get… NEWS!
