The Incontiguous Brick

Bloggers have rights too!

From arstechnica.com:

A recent federal decision from South Carolina does indicate that at least some bloggers are journalists. It’s not about the title, it’s about the content, said Judge Henry Hurlong, Jr.; a journalist turns out to be anyone who does journalism, and bloggers who do so have the same rights and privileges under federal law as the “real” journalists.

The judge noted explicitly that “some bloggers are without question journalists.”

I know that this will not apply to this blog because content at the Incontiguous Brick is far too biased, inflammatory, and devoid of legitimate content to qualify as journalism. On the other hand, lack of journalistic integrity seems to work for Fox News, so maybe there is hope.
