Hi. I'm a "salivating moron."

BBC article on the ongoing battle between mainstream media and bloggers.

Quoted in the article is Steve Lovelady, managing editor of the Columbia Journalism Review, who spits, "The salivating morons who make up the lynch mob prevail."

Bill Press condemned bloggers as people "with no credentials, no sources, no rules, no editors and no accountability."

And these are the liberals.

Jay Rosen, New York University journalism professor, was a bit more open-minded as the blogger behind PressThink, telling the BBC some of the failures are simply down to journalists' lack of understanding of the web.

"If (CBS and Eason Jordan) had been literate at all in the internet, they would have saved themselves a lot of trouble," he said.

Meanwhile, I better go get some credentials of some sort. .. or at least some tissues to catch the saliva.
