Is News Blogging Good or Bad?

OSTERLEY PARK, ENGLAND - MARCH 03: A sign hang...Image by Getty Images via @daylifeSome bloggers choose to write about new stories as soon as they happen. This is usually left up to news channels and newspapers, but with modern technology and the speed of the internet, bloggers are now telling news.
News blogs aren't a very common type of blog, but they are definitely exciting blogs and sometimes even controversial. Bloggers can post updates instantaneously without having to conduct interviews and have an editor read the posts. Newspapers report yesterday's news and news channels only report during their scheduled times, so blogs have an advantage. Many people are very accepting of this new and exciting news source.
How do bloggers know about news stories when they happen? With cell phones having cameras people can now take pictures and videos when they are at the scene of a crime or during some kind of newsworthy event. People can send these photos to others and they can quickly end up on the internet where blogs see them and starting making posts before the media even gets a chance to report. Many people like this new blog reporting, because they feel like they are getting their news in a more personal way without the media editing it at all.
On the other hand, some people still prefer newspapers and television news. Blogs don't need to be checked and edited so they can post news faster, however this also leads to more opportunity for mistakes. Bloggers aren't trained journalists and they don't have fact checkers. The quick spreading of news on blogs sometimes leads to a large spread of false information.
News blogging is controversial with people for and against it, but it is not likely to go away anytime soon.
