Angry journalists blame blogs, blog blame

Ever since Dan Rather got canned...
The Main Stream Media is going through some changes. Changes resembling those that transformed the buggy whip industry at the advent of the automobile age. Advertising revenue is off, circulation/viewership is down and public trust in MSM journalists is at an all-time low. The "workers" at the MSM newspapers and network news desks are feeling the pinch.

As liberals everywhere are wont to do, these disgruntled journalists are casting blame everywhere but upon their own failures. Most of them seem to blame the internets in general and the blog phenomenon in particular for their slide into unemployment.

In an ironic turn of events, these complainants find little choice but to use the very instruments of their torment to give vent to their dissatisfaction. They have a web site. But for a few cosmetic differences, their web site might as well be yet another miserable blog.

What goes around, comes around.
