Hey, maybe the whole blogger-kerfuffle will boost their ratings. Anyway, check out ‘GBH @ 7pm and see if they show David in his most orc-ish light — again.
Thanks to Jay for the image.
UPDATE: Fine, it’s over. Our long national nightmare has ended.
The lead-in segment, including David’s video, was fairly edited. John Carroll was appropriately contrite, and even showed a greater depth of understanding of both the issue at hand and the blogosphere in general than his co-panelists. The usually sensible Dan Kennedy dug in his heels a bit, wondering how we could get anything done if we actually read the NY Times skeptically. (Contra Dan, it wouldn’t have required a stem-to-stern fact check.) (Update: Dan takes issue with my characterization of his comments. You decide.) Callie Crosley thought that the bloggers named in the Times article ought to disclose their financial connections with campaigns. Well, that’s settled then!
Gather round the campfire, and we’ll all sing kumbayah …
