Now with David Brancaccio
Yesterday, I met with local bloggers and found them to be as diverse as blogs themselves. Awesome.
Can bloggers keep their mojo? Can you trust your hometown blogs? Can you be a blogger? Will you?
Like all things, blogs are good, bad and downright ugly.
The current controversy about whether bloggers are journalists is a moot point, as far as I'm concerned. The theory that one reads only the blogs with which one agrees is probably true to a degree. Feeling out of step is fairly common in this new environment and searching for blogs that resonate with one is not a bad thing, imho. Obviously, one wouldn't agree with everything that was written and good dialogue can often take place. Oftentimes, ideas worth mainstream notice surface.
It occurs to me that while some readers prefer Newsweek, others are committed to Time. Magazines and newspapers are probably as biased as bloggers and with fake news surfacing on most channels it's welcome relief to find blogs and concrete references.
May you find or write the type you seek.
