The Print V. Web Wars: Book Folk Terrified Of Blogs On The Internets! – Gawker

Yet another guy with a job at a mainstream media outlet who just KNOWS deep down in his soul that public opining should be restricted to people with 401k’s.

First, it was guys in bathrobes in efficiency apartments in the Bronx who should know their place and shut the fuck up*.  Now it’s guys in basements in Terre Haute who need to keep their worthless, unsubsidized opinions to themselves.

What was it someone once said?  Something about Freedom of the Press belonging to those who own one.  I don’t see no linotype in your Terre Haute basement or Bronx efficiency apartment.
