Rhetorical Question

Who makes bloggers look worse? The ones who call themselves “journalists” without bothering to do any research, or the ones who get paid to post about a product they like and disclose it?

I think the question answers itself, don’t you?

Update: Also see Jeff Jarvis’ post today about Business 2.0 paying bloggers on the basis of popularity.

Update #2: Et tu, Doc Searls? I just finished part II of the Gillmor Gang and it seems as though the group has a bit of a double standard about deriving income from the web.
