The Blogger/Journalist War Quote of the Day

From Brian Cubbison of the Syracuse Post-Standard, on the great divide of the media right now:

When journalists blog and bloggers journalise, it no longer makes sense to pit bloggers vs. journalists. Anyone who still thinks in those terms is unprepared — not for the Web but for the next one, the live Web and its instant, mobile news.

Anyone who speaks of bloggers vs. journalists should be made to show their work. Strengthen the argument with links to actual bloggers and journalists. Anyone who uses the saggy, worn-out cliche of bloggers in pajamas should name one, just one, or be made to take down that sign above the desk, “When your mother says she loves you, check it out.”

H/t Daniel Victor
