Remember Dan Rather?
He of the Political Hit Piece that got exposed by the Blogosphere, and led to the end of his career at CBS?
Dan, and many in the Mainstream, Old-Style, Media, and non-blogging public, understand little about the Blogosphere, and the diversity of content, and contributors there is to be found there.
It's not ALL Politics, and War.
FINALLY, that ignorance began to change because of that 2004 story.
Anyway, here is a little something I wrote for your back then, "In defense of the PJ Pundit", and I wish to thank the incomparable Dr. Seuss for providing the inspiration.
I loved the Doc, when I was 2.
And, bless him, I STILL do. ;-D
Blogger Seuss Meets Dan Rather
I am Blogger.
I AM Blogger.
Blogger I AM !
Newsman Dan! Newsman Dan! I do not like you Newsman Dan!
"Do you wear pajamas when you write?"
I DO wear them, Newsman Dan.
"Do you wear them day or night?"
"Do you wear them in a house? Do you wear them as you wield your computer mouse?"
"Do wear you them as you watch my competitors on FOX? Those folks who give my guy Kerry such frequent knocks?"
"Do you? DO you? Listening to Rush? Hannity? O'Reilly? What mush!."
"Bloggers! I don't like you. With your opinions I don't agree. I wish you'd just leave me be!"
"A pain! A pain! A pain! A pain! Why are you Bloggers such a pain?"
"Say! At ABC could you bark? Here's the number to NBC, go enjoy a lark!
Would you, could you, my plea please hark?"
"Would you, could you, stop being a pain?"
"Could you, would you, please not gloat?"
"Would you, could you, in November, please not vote?"
"I do NOT like you Bloggers. I must say. Hate you! Hate you! Night and day. Leave me alone, I say!"
What can I Say? I LOVE Blogging despite comment spam! I do!
I love to write in my Pajamas, Newsman Dan!
I Blog in my work clothes, and in a coat. And I blog in the nude, please take note!
I do so love to Blog, Newsman Dan!
Your mistakes are quite the story!
Anyone of us, at any given moment, can fact check your behind fully clothed, or in the buff!! ;-D
