Defedning citizen journalism

Steve Outing defends citizen journalism, picking up on the same link I responded to here. Of course, Outing is more insightful.

I know a some webloggers think blogs are the beginning of the end of MSM, or at least that blogs are somehow superior to what professional journalists do. It wouldn’t surprise anybody that I disagree with that; however, the sanctimony from some in the MSM about the purity of journalism, with an attitude that blogs have nothing really to offer, is equally as shortsighted. Blogs and MSM need each other. Neither is per se superior to the other. Each has a place and role. It’s better to recognize that than fight against it.
