Do bloggers think they're writing journalism?

Taken from a Pew Internet Research Project 2006, which was based on a telephone survey of American bloggers:

Only one-third of bloggers see blogging as a form of journalism. Yet many check facts and cite original sources.
  • 34% of bloggers consider their blog a form of journalism, and 65% of bloggers do not.
  • 57% of bloggers include links to original sources either “sometimes” or “often.”
  • 56% of bloggers spend extra time trying to verify facts they want to include in a post either “sometimes” or “often.”
