Blogger Coverage To Be Carried By The Associated Press

The Associated Press has made the move to utilize bloggers to augment their news gathering efforts by working with the Media Bloggers Association.

Pal Bob Cox who founded the Media Blogges Association (MBA) gets the credit for making this happen. As a board member of the MBA and its Treasurer, this is a big step for giving more credibility to the blogging community and clearly shows that the AP is looking at how it can use "citizen journalists" who specialize in "instant journalism" to stay on top of breaking news, with insight and expertise, while still maintaining AP style and professionalism.
