To most people there is not much difference between bloggers and journalists, except that bloggers tend to work alone or on small groups and journalists have the support of large media organisations, it is at this point, where bloggers will start to get a bit scared!
In the US a judge has ruled that a blogger named Crystal Cox, must pay $2.5 (£1.6) million, because she is not a journalist!
Oh, yes! We live in fear from now on because apparently if you are not;
“affiliated with any newspaper, magazine, periodical, book, pamphlet, news service, wire service, news or feature syndicate, broadcast station or network, or cable television system.”
So now speaking your mind could mean a massive law suit heading your way and with fines like that, not many of us would be left standing!
