And thanks for lending a hand on my little "occupy the creative america facebook page" I just realized you are one of the few that speaks up with some facts. I can't seem to get any out of the industry folks.
"unfortunately compromised by how this particular individual - based on Ars Technica's discussion about this case - is somewhat shady and not very sound of mind"
Not being snarky here but is that point relevant?
I am 44, still single and would rather strap a snowboard to my feet and throw myself off cliff in late jan. rather than grow up and give the folks some grandkids. Does that make me any less informed or not a journalist on various matters I would chose to report on?
"For example, I've noted plenty of times that I am not a "journalist." However, at times, I most certainly engage in journalism."
That poses a really interesting question Mike. You post more than most folks, it's reporting on stuff(to take the simple route), is it therefore not journalism?
Do the waters get muddied because you have bigger fish to fry, as a general rule, in the office?
Is the video of passive college students getting maced while sitting down not journalism?
Is there some law(s) that escape me here? One of my long time e-commerce clients, by happenstance, caught me hazing the sock puppets on creative america's failed attempt at a fan page and just gave me politicalsensibilty.net to play with. More on that later, maybe... sorta busy.
Having said that, what would inherently make or not make me a journalist when, at least relevant to said domain, I am reporting news as unbiasedly as humanly possible? I dig stuff up, ask questions and so on.
Must I incorporate the notion? I frankly have no idea but I will likely ramp that stuff up so I can continue to bitch about things. I grow most weary of creative america. Largely because there is nothing creative about them lol...

Heh, really? I have yet to see much if anything innovative from the entertainment industry.
#24 Where do you think the inordinate of amount of cash from MPAA related lobbyists is going? I don't know if they physically penned it or not but they damn sure bought off someone to write it for them otherwise.
