Bloggers vrs Journalists (again)

Richard Sambrook, reporting from Davos, touches on a long-running debate:

Finally, a neat way of differentiating journalists and bloggers. “Bloggers suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, journalists suffer from Attention deficit disorder.” In other words, journalists report and move on and don’t always follow up. Bloggers are obsessive, get hold of an issue and won’t let go….

And I can’t help feeling that more reporters should be like bloggers.
