Would you say the journalism blog is revolutionizing the profession?
Journalism is undergoing a revolution, but not just because of the blog.
Absolutely. I can give you one local example. After the boom of bloggers during the first couple years of the Tea Parties in the St.Louis area, local news reporters instead of traveling with a cameraman are now being expected to carry their own camera, set it up, and become more of a one-man-show. Because of the willingness for bloggers to do this kind of production process, it is shaping how tv news reporters are being asked to report their stories...and they are not pleased. Funny thing is, if major news was less bias, there would have been no need for bloggers to increase in such numbers - reshaping the industry. Then again, it may have happened anyway.
To some extent. And, I can safely say to because I am one of pioneering bloggers of Nepal.
It did about 10 years ago and we are now seeing the effects of this revolution with the death of the daily paper.
I think it kind of does, mainly because it offers the possibility of reading an article by people who are living miles away from you and have no chance of getting that information in the traditional papers of from the telly.
It's liberating the market, but at the same it is hurting professional journalism & unbiased reporting.
Not really. It still carries more status in the media and in the public to stay "I'm a columnist" or "I'm a reporter" than to say "I'm a blogger."
I've been "beat blogging" for five years on my main topic and hosted or co-hosted other blogs in the meantime. Therefore, I have quite a bit of experience with this.
The advantages include the fact that immediacy does not have to be lost. One can jump into a conversation as soon as it becomes a trending topic or headline of the day.
I also like the fact that on a blog, I can embed links to follow up points or reference material so the reader can find more information with just one click.
The disadvantages are bloggers must spend quite a bit of time marketing their product instead of focusing solely on reporting and presentation.
Ofcourse it is , in a sense that is the voice of the 'I' instead of the whole institution. Its more liberation to the individual , its a stage where one gets to perform any kind of art. Saying your opinion freely to me that is journalism.
I think that when one blogs, the ideas come from the 'heart' and it helps us stay 'connected' in a different manner, and yes, it has revolutionized the profession because one can go and read what's of interest directly from an expert or experienced source.
Depends how the blog is run. If readers are brought into the process of producing reporting, then I'm more inclined to say yes.
claro que sim, o blog é um contato direto com as pessoas interessadas no seu trabalho jornalistico, a internet revolucionou o mundo, ela uniu todas as pessoas independentemente da classe social, na internet todo mundo se tornou igual, isso é muito legal.
Definitely, it is making journalism more accesible. However, we must observe if the source is being objective and ethical while informing.
