Adam Serwer on Jeffrey Goldberg’s anonymous WaPo sources:
I remember a time when there was nothing more vile than those nasty bloggers with their anonymous comment sections. Behind veils of anonymity, the cowardly hordes of the Internet would spew rivers of bile and the real journalists would clutch their pearls and lament the decline of public discourse. Now that the bloggers have moved into the newsroom, some of these “traditional” reporters have joined the cesspool of anonymous flaming they once used as examples of why blogging couldn’t be taken seriously as a journalistic medium.
How’s that for a bit of irony?
I’m still waiting for the Glenzilla to drink Goldberg’s milkshake for his preposterous “Won’t you think of the Kurds” bit yesterday.
