Are bloggers journalists? Meet one and decide for yourself on Friday, February 22, at 12:30 p.m. in the Meeman Journalism Building Auditorium.

Thaddeus Matthews is a blogger (http://thadmatthews.blogspot.com) and radio personality on KWAM-990. His recent controversial posting of leaked police documents has drawn the attention of prosecutors.

The forum will explore such issues as whether bloggers should be considered journalists, and if they deserve constitutional protection.

The public is invited.

The event is sponsored by the Society of Professional Journalists.
