Can a journalist have a blog?

(This, for me, was the Alice-in-Wonderland session at the Online News Association conference. The question no one asked, which might have put an end to the foolishness of a roomfull of professional reporters discussing if they had a right to voice their opinions: if a journalist takes a public position on free speech issues (as they were doing at that moment), can he or she write about speech?)

[This was to be a parenthetical phrase in a post on the Idealab blog, but is exiled here. There's lots more to write about this session, register with this site or subscribe to the RSS feed if you're interested in case it doesn't make Idealab.]
