16 Sep 2004 No Clownish Fluffball Enterprise
From Michelle Malkin’s Love Letter to the Blogosphere today:
From This episode is also a powerful rebuke of the MSM’s Wonkette-ization of the blogosphere–which enabled Old Media types to take comfort in gossip blogger Ana Marie Cox’s bosom and minimize blogging as a clownish fluffball enterprise. They’ll still visit her site for an occasional fix of penis jokes and fabricated rumors, but she’ll no longer be in their daily must-reads, where she has been replaced by bloggers of substance who don’t need to go slumming to command deserved attention from newsrooms across the country.
I recommend all of it.
