NPR's Lopate Interviews Food Bloggers

Who knew there were so many food blogs? NPR's Leonard Lopate talks with Gourmet's Ruth Reichl, The Foodsection.com's Josh Friedland, snack.blogs.com's Jennifer Leuzzi and gastropoda.com's Regina Schrambling.

I always wondered what kind of impact food blogs have on the mainstream food media and do readers trust food bloggers more than say Gourmet or Saveur? What makes someone write about food?

I heard that segment as well. I think the guys that wrote "The Cluetrain Manifesto" were correct.

Nearly all journalism that focuses on how we evaluate consumer products and pop culture will be distributed to the masses.

I would not advise anyone to pursue the traditional path of the professional reviewer. All of that will be done by blogs by the end of the decade.

There will still be room for food journalism, but the roving chowhound on the newspaper payroll will become a thing of the past.

True. One advantage that MSM will have is resources. As much as I would love to spend all day eating out and reviewing, I just don't have the funds for that. A big paper or magazine would.
