Comment: This sounds like covert free speech attack (Score 1) 149

Only 5% of bloggers are journalists therefor it can't be journalism..... And if what is going on in a person's personal life, New Orleans, is important. Or if Politics, next election, are issues they wont have any protection because its not 'journalism'.

Own the papers, buy the journalists... then you can afford to have journalistic freedom but not if people can report on things themselves.

Discredit blogs and you begin destroying most grass roots information in the country.

If freedom of speakers rights matters it must be speech not job profile that is protected.

Judging from news coverage in much of this country even less than 5% of big media are journalists.

They do "Play one on TV" though.
