Old meet new

Yahoo! has just combined "old" traditional journalism with "new" world blogs in their news section further blurring the lines between new and old media.
Yahoo Inc.'s online news search tool on Monday added Internet journal entries as a supplement to professional media offerings - an experiment that figures to test the public's appetite for information from alternative sources.
Under Yahoo's new approach, a keyword search for online news will include a list of relevant Web logs, or "blogs," displayed in a box to the right of the results collected from mainstream journalism.
Google Inc., which runs the Internet's leading search engine, so far has treated blogs differently.
