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.

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