Recently the corporate media have been frothing about us fascist liberal bloggers:
On Thursday, the Washington Post’s David Broder rejected “liberal bloggers,” claiming that “the blogs I have scanned are heavier on vituperation of President Bush and other targets than on creative thought.” Today, the New York Times’ David Brooks, while specifically lashing out at Kos, characterized liberal bloggers as “small-minded,” and described sites as “squadrons of rabid lambs [who] unleash their venom on those who stand in the way.”
Why haven’t I been named? I abolished Godwin’s Law over a year ago. (Bush is a fascist, that’s why). I routinely tell trolls to fuck off and die. Wherever I have found them, I have forthrightly opposed proposals for comity, civility and normal human decency. If anyone’s a rabid attack lamb, I am.
But did Brooks name me? Did Broder? Did Zengerle?
No, no, and no.
Instead they went on about some wimpy nice-guys who never even link to me. What’s a guy have to do to catch a break around here?
