Nieman Journalism Lab: Google’s Eric Schmidt answered questions about how and why Google now distinguishes between news organizations and blogs in its search. “My guess is…it has a lot to do with the infrastructure around the writer. So a blog that’s associated with a major, legitimate organization…would be, I think, treated differently than an individual blogger who’s using his or her right of free expression to say whatever he thinks. So the presence of an editor, as an example. You know, an editor that’s not your mom.”
