Bloggers are not reporters
Tuesday, January 12, 2016 by Dave Winer

The subject of reporters' resentment of bloggers came up today. 

I offered this cartoon, from the DNC of 2004, as evidence.

I didn't offer a correction then, but I will now. Our qualification for blogging the Democratic Convention is not "I own a PC" it's this -- "I vote."

Reporters are so stubborn. They would never listen when we said who we were. 

We're not you. 

We're the people you cover, and we're the people who read you.

Basically bloggers are everyone but you.
