Robert Niles at Online Journalism Review asks, “Can newspapers do blogs right?” — and some prominent online journalists offer responses.
As someone who wrote a newspaper blog for more than five years, I can assure you that the answer is Yes.
The fact that newspapers sometimes screw it up is meaningless, or close to it. Newspapers also screw up the “regular” journalism, too, from time to time. That doesn’t seem to deter them.
The only un-fixable mistake is when you fall off the horse and then refuse to jump back on.
