Everybody hates the “bloggers”

The Business of Fashion:

Blogger. The term itself has become one of fashion’s dirtiest words, a catchall axiom for superfluous clingers-on and fashion riff-raff. But why exactly is the blame for the bi-annual circus that fashion week has become — including overstuffed shows, fashion peacocks and Sartorialist-wannabes — falling on the shoulders of well-meaning bloggers? And why are the designers themselves (and their PR representatives who often aggressively enlist bloggers to post about their clients) getting off so easily?

You can say the same about other industries (including tech) where blogging has become a the media machine.
