Are bloggers journalists? OPB picks up the issue

Update: LO has the audio and comment thread here.)

The background: Loaded Orygun blogger TJ was recently denied access to a Lake Oswego Council executive session on the grounds that he wasn't credentialed.

The story and the underlying issue--what counts as being a "journalist?"--were soon picked up by the local media, and in about 15 minutes the OPB public affairs program "Think Out Loud" will devote a show to the issue.

Information here, including links to background, online discussion at the OPB site, and live streaming.
