Editor's Note: Bloggers and the Blogging Bloggers who Blog Them
Thursday, March 23, 2006
There is a piece in the Huffington Post blog today by Nora Ephron about how bloggers get beat up not only in the mainstream media, but by other bloggers. In it she points out that blogs have recently been disparaged by Donald Rumsfeld, Joe Lieberman, Judy Miller, and even the blogger Kos, of Daily Kos.
I'm proud to say that in the past year, we at NewsBlog 5000 have disparaged blogs over a dozen times, and with this, we are making it a bakers dozen. Now Frankly, I didn't read all of Ms. Ephron's post, because it was a little long. But this is exactly the sort of liberal claptrap that makes blogging so irrelevant. And a note to Ms. Ephron: nothing is more pathetic than a blogger blogging about blogging, except maybe a blogger blogging from the point of view of his cat.
