Bloggers are Journalists - The ripening meme

It seems that this meme is gaining ground. A journalist is someone who reports his or her ideas about the state of current affairs to the public through a medium. The Web is one such medium (note AP style capitalization of Web). It looks like all branches of government are accepting this.

Legislation to give blogs same access to FOI as journalists.

Plame decision: Bloggers are considered to be judges by appellate court.

So far I have just been giving my opinions on various aspects, though I could do some local reporting. According to varifrank and other journalist bloggers, this is supposed to be the ultimate future of blogging. Since bloggers will eventually be worldwide, this also means that anything major will happen in the vicinity of a blogger.
