Everyone's favorite blogger was in the news last week, and for all the seemingly wrong reasons. Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks and writer of one of the most widely read blog around, ousted Dallas Morning News reporter Tim MacMahon, denying access to the Mavs locker room.

It does beg a few questions: What are blogs? What is the difference between the following types of content supplied by a traditional media organization: a printed article, a web article, a blog post? Are bloggers somehow protected from ethics and journalistic rigor?
