The Real Scoopers

(via Study: Majority Of Journalists Use Blogs by Steve Rubel) "Clearly, journalists are hanging out in the blogosphere looking for sources, scoops and more. There's no excuse - no excuse - for not monitoring blogs."

My only hope is that these "voyeurs journalists" are giving credit where credit is due. I have yet to hear or see an on air reporter credit a blogger for his/her news source.

If you've ever worked in a newsroom, you'd know that most of the time you are pounding the phones and newspapers for story ideas. Now with the emergence of blogs, news folks have unlimited stories to choose from. I just wish we saw it reflected more on Broadcast Television news. I can't believe there aren't any "blog news updates." It would certainly make the news more interesting and "less fluff".
