    Bloggers and the Associated Press: the Past and the Future

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Bloggers and the Associated Press have been butting heads for quite a while. It's no wonder, too, if you understand what they are and what they stand for. And yet, each side benefits from the other's existence. To understand the touchy dance between them, keep reading.

    Bloggers are an independent-minded group of largely self-publishing writers. The Associated Press is an organization that prides itself on upholding the standards for journalists all around the world. It does not take much of an imagination to figure out why these two groups have had problems getting along. As time has gone on, the relationship has progressed, but it has been a rocky path.

    If you want to know where things are going, you have to know where they have been. That is why today, we are going to look at the history of bloggers and the Associated Press from both sides of the fence. After that, we will look at the places that this relationship may go in the future. Will bloggers and the Associated Press ever be one and the same? Maybe. Let's take a look at how it all began.

    Stage One: Mutual Ignorance to Growing Awareness

    In the beginning bloggers did not give the Associated Press much thought, and the Associated Press did not think much about bloggers. This was probably because in the early days of blogging, most blogs were personal in nature. Since they were not posting news, they and the AP were mostly in separate worlds.

    Of course, a good piece of technology, like a blog, will rarely continue to exist in a limited capacity. As blogging grew up, and the technology became more widely available, blogging moved into the mainstream. That meant that as more bloggers joined the party, they went from personal to professional. This lead to a growing awareness of the two organizations.

    As blogs began to post news, the Associated press began to keep an eye on them. As blogs began to more forward, they were increasingly concerned with their standards. This could have been a golden moment of union, but the attitudes of both groups kept them apart.
