Written by fools to be read by imbeciles…

Mr. Rago, assistant editorial features editor at The Wall Street Journal, eloquently addresses the blogosphere as:

The Blog Mob: Written by fools to be read by imbeciles.

This may be the most pretentious and pompous attack that I’ve seen by a Newspaper professional yet! As a former newspaper professional, it’s really disappointing to see this attitude. Even worse, I’m a fan of the Wall Street Journal. Rather than embracing the “information superhighway” newspapers think it should be maintained as an “information toll road” … and a “one-way” road at that.

Mr. Rago, I’m sorry you’re losing control over deciphering, filtering, and editing information before we are ‘allowed’ to digest it. I’m sorry that I lack the vocabulary and grammatical skills of someone of your stature. Perhaps your opinion has something to do with everyone else’s opinion of your product:

Or this… Technorati in comparison:

Mr. Rago, you may want to keep an eye on this fool… he’s attracting quite a few imbeciles (bottom right corner):
Douglas Karr vs. WSJ Opinion Journal

I look forward to comparing our readership next year… if you’re around. I doubt you will be.

    There’s always some moron out there that thinks he/she knows everything. Obviously, he doesn’t have any sense to write decent material in the first place…hey here’s a thought…maybe he’s worried that some better (Doug) blogger will come along and take his job away from him? 8 )
