Why do so many bloggers from “the left” write about what Andrew Sullivan says? Why should anyone care what he says? Why should anyone be reading him, to know what he says? Why promote him by using his name? When you write about what he says, you’re telling your readers that what he says matters. It doesn’t.
This is the first and hopefully last time I ever use his name here. I don’t read him. I wrote this about this issue once before:
Blog readers may have noticed that there are certain popular blog topics that I have avoided. I have specifically avoided ever mentioning a certain writer whose initials, if you add an ‘S’, would be “ASS.”
The piece was titled Journalistic Integrity.
