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.
