Real Journalists have copy laid off WHO?

Doc links to an opinion piece by Jon Friedman, Media Editor for the public radio show MarketWatch.

Friedman writes,

Newspapers and magazines have long had teams of news editors, copy editors and proofreaders to catch mistakes and make sure a writer is capturing an appropriate tone.

Meanwhile, the Seattle Times plans 90 to 110 layoffs and Who at the 'Telegraph' will survive Monday's deadline?

Real Journalists are getting less of what makes them different from random people with web sites. In the future, will the difference between a "blogger" and a Real Journalist be that the latter has an expense account and a clunkier content management system?
