New Tweet: The FCC says I'm not a real journalist. Sup wit dat?

When reading on the FTC's notion that online bloggers cannot be considered journalists, I start to think of a few things. The FTC believes that because a blogger is sent free consoles/video games to keep for trying out the games for review, it somewhat means that it will automatically breech one's integrity. Yet if you look into music magazines, the companies are given free CDs to review for the magazine. Do we deny magazine reviewers the badge of journalism? Or how about when a movie critic gets free screenings and posters to all just for reviewing a movie? Are we going to cast doubt on his integrity as a journalist?
