N&R editor John Robinson answers an earlier post where I write, "There's no doubt the News Record's blogs will need the corporate stamp of approval before they're posted."

I thought it was interesting that I didn't warrant a link. Robinson just referenced my post, describing me only as "one writer." I don't know if Robinson knows who I am (not that I'm anybody) and doesn't want to give too much credence to a guy working for a competing publication. Maybe he just didn't have time to link me.

Robinson writes that, following my statement, "No elaboration or evidence (is) given." I think it's obvious: I'm my own publisher, editor and writer, as are the majority of bloggers. I can do what I want. I'm blogging the school board meeting tonight. If, in addition to providing the details of the meeting, I want to interject my opinion, I'm free to do so. I just don't believe the N&R reporters will have that freedom. Based on what I've read so far, that seems to be the case. It's not a bad trade-off: They get paid to blog, I don't.
