Middle ground between journalists, bloggers

Robert Cox, president of the Media Bloggers Association, held court at the SPJ convention over the weekend. For the past couple of years, Bob has been interested in adopting a statement of ethics at the MBA. (Disclosure: I am a board member.) The first try was met with a ton of rancor. This time around, Bob’s making a mission out of hearing what professional journalists think of bloggers and trying to find some middle ground. Journalists need to understand that bloggers are not the lunatic fringe enemy. Bloggers need to understand that professional journalists aren’t going away. Understanding is a good place to start.
