Reading Response #4 – Journalists and Journalism

1. This week’s chapter title asks a question.  Based on the reading and your experiences with blogs (reading and writing them), are bloggers citizen journalists?

2. Melissa Wall’s comments cited in the chapter brought to mind a quote by the former co-owner of The Washington Post, Philip Graham.  He said, “Journalism is the first draft of history.”  Think about how news blogs, Facebook, Tumblr, instagram, vine postings, tweets etc – and any other social media platform being used by news organizations now and in the future may impact journalism and therefore the writing of the historical draft.

Don’t forget to post your responses by the Tuesday 10/1 @ 11:59p deadline.
