Are Blogs & Editorials the Same Thing?

Jeff Jarvis compares editorialists to bloggers:

“The irony is that the editorialists have long been guilty of the sins most often attributed to bloggers: They rarely report and mostly just leach off the work of other journalists. And they work anonymously. Worse, they attempt to speak as the voices of institutions, issuing opinions as if from the mountaintop.”

Strong words. But perhaps BusinessWeek agrees with him:

“There will be a reduction of 12 employees across administration, editorial and editorial production in order to enhance BusinessWeek’s long-term prospects and adapt to a changing marketplace.”
