The NY Times, Wal-Mart and Bloggers
There is a little something going on here. I'm not sure what it is.
Last week, the NY Times had an article by Michael Barbaro* basically lambasting Wal-Mart for it's use of Bloggers in it's PR Campaign. In it he lumps Bloggers together, using quotes from Bloggers (I counted three) making it seem like everyone just cuts and pastes their posts and never give credit to the original author.
ME "Liz" Strauss, over at Successful Blog** has written a very good editorial on the subject. In it she includes rebuttals from other Bloggers involved. Apparently, Mr Barbaro did some selective research for his article, showing only the results he wanted. I think if he checked a little further, he may have gotten a different result, and a different article.
I, personally, don't like being labeled as second class. If the Main Stream Media thinks Bloggers are just going to go away, they should think again.
Head on over to Liz's blog, read the article and leave a comment.
