Barbados: Blogging as Journalism?

“Blogging has become very popular around the world, Barbados no exception”: Barbados Underground says that “the fact that the traditional media in Barbados continues to regard bloggers as nincompoops maybe more a reflection on them than the blogs.”

    An Ottawa Canada newspaper has done an article featuring Barbados Free Press, calling the blog a “feisty online newspaper”. If professional journalists calling bloggers a “newspaper” isn’t acknowledging that bloggers are journalists of some stripe, I don’t know what is!

    See Barbados Free Press for the article about the Ottawa Citizen.
