The question has been put to me of late of whether or not I am a legitmate journalist. And while this has been explored at lenght by those such as Glenn Reynolds, the question again arises to prominence, by virtue of the blogoshere’s current presence in the public square.

There is little doubt that well-known blogger Andrew Sullivan is a legitimate journalist, as that is his primary profession. And few would begrudge the title to such widely (on dead tree) published personalities as Eugene Volokh or Glenn Reynolds. But what about myself, Sgt. Mom, or say, Perry de Havilland: Are we legitimate journalists?
