Journalist Says the Best Bloggers Will Become Skeptics

Tech journalism vet and former CMP colleague David Strom writes that for all the hype on blogs, it all comes down to reader trust and that some bloggers are not doing a good job walking the white line...

The bloggers themselves are beginning to see where having the training of journalists (or those of us who pretend to be) helps. They need the experience to make judgment calls about the information that they present to their devoted public.

He goes on to say that he thinks eventually the better bloggers will develop the same discrimination and skepticism skills that the better journalists have, just as a matter of self-preservation. The article touches on CEO blogging as well as PR ethics in this new world of open-source journalism.
