Bloggers--the WSJ Doesn't Like You

Courtesy of JunkYardBlog:

Every conceivable belief is on the scene, but the collective prose, by and large, is homogeneous: A tone of careless informality prevails; posts oscillate between the uselessly brief and the uselessly logorrheic; complexity and complication are eschewed; the humor is cringe-making, with irony present only in its conspicuous absence; arguments are solipsistic; writers traffic more in pronouncement than persuasion

...in describing blogs, found in the WSJ.

So, Charlie, what'd you DO to this guy? Shoot his doggie?

I read that article today over my coffee

all I could think of was the phrase

"Jealous Much"

He works for the Wall Street Journal someone should tell him to take a gander at the newspaper stocks the Tribune company just cut its dividend

Almost all the MSM newspaper stocks are dogs.
