Rogers Cadenhead, one time journalist and longtime blogger, has briefly returned to journalism. The freelancing has made him consider the difference between blogging and "real" journalism. It makes me consider, in this world where the difference between blogging and journalism is less distinct than ever, the importance of journalistic controls for either side as news and blogs try harder to look like each other. Journalists under editorial control seem to report more conjecture/rumours because blogs too often beat them to the punch, and blogs get more investigative as they clamor for credibility despite lack of editors and content review.
