Since writing the 16 Ways The News Media Can Use Blogs post, I've thought of a seventeenth way.

News organizations, particularly newspapers, can publish dissenting voices of editorials on their websites. Not everyone on an editorial board — like judges (including the most famous at the Supreme Court) — agrees with the board's statements, but at least judges write dissenting or concurring opinions expressing why they disagree with a ruling or agree with a decision for different reasons.

Blogging differing opinions from the editorial board will not only provide a deeper and richer statement from a news organization that wouldn't make to print or air, publishing such content helps organizations avoid the tempting, yet staid, option of simply republishing articles from the dead tree version or aired pieces on the Internet.

Got any other ideas on how the news media can blog?
