Tail that Mocks the Blog

In his article “The Tail That Wags the Blog”, Joel Achenbach of the Washington Post smugly boasts about his popularity while making jest of Bloggers:

I’m surprised that bloggers didn’t get it. Achenbach conceals his true derision of bloggers behind a camouflage of disingenuously written humor.

A few weeks back, I blogged three paragraphs on Karl Rove. Someone at Google News linked to the blog, and a Rovestorm erupted, a festival of vituperation, with a commensurately outstanding number of page views.

Yes Joel, how difficult can it be when you’re a member of the Dan Rather fraternity?

“The continual focus-grouping explains why most bloggers write as though their primary goal is to rise in the Google search results.”

Why so smug Joel? Obviously you practice what you preach. I live for exposing lame schmos like you. And as for yur tail that wags, you know where you can stick it.

“And let me just add, purely for the sake of Google: sex, alien abduction, Oprah, Tom Cruise, Lindsay Lohan, jumbo hooters the size of watermelons, Dick Cheney, Mark of the Beast, Armageddon, free money.”

But thanks for the tip.

P.S.: You forgot Cindy Sheehan, George Bush, Iraq… Shizer!

  1. Most of the media is now embracing the blogosphere, except for some dinosaurs like you mention

  2. While bloggers embrace the MSMedia. I know the most fun I’ve had from blogging has come at the hands eventually of the Main Stream Media reading my blog [or something else online] and taking action from it. Me, or someone I spoke with ended up on air, and that’s entertainment. Can’t have that happen by just watching TV, at least not unless a meteorite crashes into the 21″ screen.

  3. Thanks for the comments. I too was interviewed by the radio and quoted in the mainstream media.

    It’s only a matter of time before mainstream and online media merge. In fact it’s already happening and many like myself have worked in both.

    There will of course always be snobs out there, and when they need it we’ll give them a good kick in the a** now and then. It’s the least we can do ;-).
