Why Mainstream Journalism is So Superior to Bloggi

Paul Holmes

Perhaps it’s just me, but if you’re a mainstream journalist trying to make the case that bloggers are too “angry” to ever replace “real” journalists, you might want to offer an argument that rises above the level of ad hominem generalizations and name-calling. If so, you wouldn’t be ever-so-serious BBC journalist Andrew Marr, who dismisses bloggers as “socially inadequate, pimpled, single, slightly seedy, bald, cauliflower-nosed young men sitting in their mother's basements and ranting” in a tirade that tells you infinitely more about Andrew Marr than it does about bloggers. This is the kind of balanced, open-minded approach that makes mainstream journalism such a superior form.
