Hot Air Takes On MSM Windbag
Editor & Publisher editor Greg Mitchell is lashing out at the blogborne backlash against the mainstream media in the wake of Reutersgate and other recent war fauxtography scandals, labeling bloggers' asonishing and repeated debunkery of frequent forgeries and stagings as "speculative, unfounded, or politically-driven charges."
Allahpundit ain't havin' none of it and offers a lengthy and all kinds of linked up rebuttal.
(I hope I didn't contribute in any way to E&P's anti-blog rancor by spellchecking their "trustworthier than thou" story of a couple days ago.)
If you're a mainstreamer thinking about betraying your sanctum and crossing that media divide, E&P has set up a Blog Watch info center to help you understand the perils of blogging, apparently owing in part to the blogosphere's darned "freewheeling atmosphere".
Here's an impromptu SAT problem for you to consider:
A) Old Man Jenkins:Those meddling kids
B) Mr. Furley:Jack and the girls
Turn your monitor upside down to reveal the answer.
