  Journalists and bloggers crossing floors
Menthol stopped smoking: "Yesterday in my presentation at WWW2005, I spoke about the differences between blogging and journalism and that, epistemologically speaking, they are completely different. The overlap area is intersting, bloggers breaking hard news, journalists posting on blogs etc. But the minute either a journalist stops caring if they are lying or a blogger starts outsourcing spell-checking, they are crossing the floor."

How the hell does a blogger become a journalist then? How is Ververs going to survice having his blog edited and sub-edited? What happens to the voice of Ververs when Ververs realises he can write whatever crap he wants because is team will fix it? What happens when CBS can be sued for what Ververs et al say on his blog?

I am going to watch this one closely because it is going to make a wonderful case study."
