How to identify a new media journalist

BusinessWeek online has posted a piece (I hesitate to describe it more specifically) entitled, "Should journalists link their work to their bios?"

IMHO, the key statement is this: "If we all embrace our biases, than the entire universe of news will turn into nothing but opinion. Is that the future we want?"

That is the fundamental question dividing 'traditional' journalists from those who embrace the growing influence of blogging on the media. I'm not saying that all journalists can be easily categorized into one of two groups, but almost any journalist worth his or her salt gets a consternated look on their face when asking how they feel about it (assuming they haven't already made up their minds...)
