Bloggers are not journalist

I've been reading about how blogging is taking over journalism or that some people view individual blogs as equivalent to news. Blogs are not news articles and bloggers are not journalist. It would be like taking someone's diary entry and calling a news article. I'm sure many bloggers can be journalist, but until blog entries are held to the same ethinical standards and verification they are just people's subjective opinions.

That said, I do want to point out that since I occasionally post technology stories that I come across and find interesting including those related to Yahoo that I should disclose that I work for Yahoo. ^^
