A New Jersey court has ruled that bloggers are not journalists (now they've taken to ruling this)! Actually the tool of a judge is right. For the most part, journalists today act as shills for the fascist Democrat party. They cover-up, obfuscate and propagandize, that's what they do.
Bloggers, OTOH, are doing the heavy lifting. Who breaks the stories today? Bloggers. Take Atlas, for example. I broke the explosive story of tens of thousands of dollars of Obama contributions from a Hamas controlled "refugee" camp in Gaza. Did media pursue it? Not a chance. Obama's Anonymous Foreign Donors and Other Bizarre Illegal Activity -- Atlas! Obama and Odinga? Atlas! 'Obama's s Organizing for America recruiting in the public schools? Atlas! Anti-semitism and vile Jew hatred on Obama's website? Atlas! ACORN throwing out Republican voter registrations? Atlas! Not to mention the numerous revelations I broke on the Rifqa Bary story (here and here and here and here)
And that's just off the top of my head. The corruption is so deep in all branches of the US government, it is jawdropping. If I am not a journalist, he is not a judge .....
The Garden State has a shield law for journalists, meaning the government cannot force reporters or opinion writers to reveal their sources. There is nothing more vigorously defended among journalists than the right to keep secret one’s anonymous sources in service of “the public’s right to know.” The decades-long secret identity of “Deep Throat” in The Washington Post’s Watergate exposés is the standard of that journalistic principle. (And there is going to be reason to snicker at that example later. Be patient.)
