I frequently get asked to review products, which I enjoy doing. Editorializing non-stop gets old after a while! Yesterday, however, I was asked to "review" a product on the basis of a press release. I declined and told the requester that I would be happy to review the product if they wanted to send me a review copy. After all, what value is a product review if you haven’t actually seen or used the product?
Take this posting in the same vein as "what is a journalist", and "when is a blogger a journalist".
