Bloggers are not equal to 'proper' journalists

Blogger Arpee Lazaro contacts me relating how he was invited by an electronics manufacturer to the launch of their latest line of entertainment devices and gadgets.

He then asked Arpee, “WHO INVITED YOU?” This lead to much humiliation in front of the people in the counter and treated like an arrested shoplifter. Here’s Arpee’s blog piece:

Arpee, look at the positive; don’t think bloggers are held in such high media regard here in OZ!!
