So it has begun

Bring it on, mo-fo

So the MSM is making squeaking noises about the blogosphere and bloggers in general. Even the usually blog-friendly Wall Street Journal has taken to blog bashing.

My response is quite predictable to both of our long time readers:


The MSM that is, not our readers. But you knew that.

I’m sure the Buggy Whip Manufacturers Association pitched a royal bitch about the coming of the automobile as well. Hewitt was talking up some article in support of the blogosphere by Peggy Noonan at Opinion Journal; do go and read it. Of course, you already had the link from Lileks this morning…..

The observation has been made that the MSM’s reaction to the blogosphere is exactly the same reaction they had to the emergence of talk radio in general and Rush Limbaugh in specific. I might add that Matt Drudge got very much the same treatment when he came into prominence.

Curiously, the MSM isn’t bitching about The Democratic Underground or The Daily Kos. Talk about ‘things that make you go “Hmmm”.’ Just thinkin’ out loud, that’s all.
