Journalism and commentary

Can bloggers become the old style journalists? Or will we see journalists fork into factual and factual with commentary type journos. I’ve mentioned before on this blog that we will see a few of the quality and probably not so quality citizens join the ranks of journalists. Blogs allow and almost default to people adding in their own commentary to news stories. Just look at Planet of the Blogs for commentary on the latest world news.

As more and more bloggers graduate into journos will more and more news stories become opinion pieces?
