The whole “what makes a journalist a journalist”/”are bloggers journalists?” discussion is one that won’t go away, and we’ve certainly weighed in on it a number of times. While preparing a recent piece on the subject, I was perusing our go-to stock photo bank for potential images, and it really struck me how silly the differences are portrayed in that.

I don’t know that a stock image bank reflects society’s opinions on bloggers and journalism, but I found the search results amusing, and thought it would be fun to share.

If you search “blog,” “blogging,” or “blogger” you get these results:

Blogging

Blogging

blogging

Journalist

blogging

blogging

That’s it. Really. That’s literally every result that comes up.

For “journalist,” there are seven pages of photos. I’m not going to include them all, but here is a sampling:

journalist

journalist

journalist

journalist

journalist

jouranlist

So, what are the takeaways here?

Bloggers are basically teenage girls with computers. Journalists don’t use computers. They use typewriters, paper, or appear on TV.

I guess the line between blogger and journalist isn’t so gray after all.

    Lol. I like the images of journalists. I’m surprised there’s not more with mobile phones and laptops hacking into private celebrity calls ;)

    Bloggers are Journalists = O
    Bloggers are Journalists = X

    There’s no answer.

    But, on the web.

    Blogger.com > Journalist.com
    Bloggers.com > Journalists.com

    I can’t figure out when But Bloggers and Journalists they are will be united.
