"Blogger" or "Journalist" or both?

I don't usually even get around to the op-eds in our paper; not unless the headline really intrigues me. This one did, newcomer to blogging that I still consider myself.

JOSH WOLF, the blogger who has spent some six months in prison for refusing to hand over a video he took of a violent July 8, 2005, protest in the Mission District of San Francisco to a federal grand jury, is not a journalist.
. . . . .
Alas, in the Special City, attacking a gay man is a hate crime, while attacking a gay cop can be a cause celebre.
