Blog study: Journalists have "new jobs"

Just now getting to the Fusion PR survey about tech reporters and blogs. (ex Talking Biz and ITProPortal) Of course, most of them find blogs and social media important. The sentence that struck me, though was this one:

When asked: “Has social media impacted your stories or the way you cover news?” a plurality of 40% said “Yes” with 10% of respondents selecting “I feel as if I have a new job now.”

Here’s betting that the journalists who feel like they have new jobs are feeling more comfortable today than those of us grimly holding onto old ones.
