Friedman, Jacob. “Blogging vs. Journalism: The Ongoing Debate – The Next Web.” TNW Network All Stories RSS. N.p., 18 Aug. 2014. Web. 17 Nov. 2014.

This source goes through all the different types of opinions on the issue of blogs vs. journalism. It takes you through each argument objectively and allows you to decide for yourself what are the positives and negatives of each side. The main point of the article conveys what each side identifies as. If a blogger identifies as a journalist they will conduct their blog in a way that reflects that attitude. It speaks to how bloggers can be erroneous and not be held liable for what they said. (this is not referring to this link, just a another idea, yellow journalism). The same is true for news journalists and reporters as well. They have been known to spread false or information that did not have a viable source. This comes into play with a twenty four hour news cycle.
