Screamin' A. Smith and Chris McCosky have more than covering the NBA in common

As seen on the usual suspects, Deadspin, Sports by Brooks, and Awful Announcing, there's more blogger bashing today.

Just how worried are "Journalists" in the MSM over the blogosphere? Plenty. As part of an InsideSoCal interview, the blogosphere's favorite punching bag, the poster boy for all that is wrong with today's media, Screamin' A. Smith, is now bitching about bloggers...

"Internet writers" have no right to reach a large audience. And when you look at the internet business, what’s dangerous about it is that people who are clearly unqualified get to disseminate their piece to the masses. I respect the journalism industry, and the fact of the matter is ...someone with no training should not be allowed to have any kind of format whatsoever to disseminate to the masses to the level which they can. They are not trained. Not experts.

Can these MSM clowns be any more insecure?

Jesus, get a damn grip. These so-called trained "Journalists" should stop worrying about the rise of the internet, and concentrate on doing their job. Doing a piss poor job is what brought bloggers to the forefront in the first place.

At this point, with the MSM unable to get a clue, and becoming more irrelevant by the day, I'll just roll my eyes, and move on. Their arrogance is laughable.

For every writer that "Gets it," there's a 100 more that hold their noses in the air, and proclaim, "I'm a trained journalist!"

Of course, they then brown nose the athletes and teams they cover, while writing absolutely generic, lazy tripe...But they were trained to do so!

  1. With Leather wrote about this too. They quote Bonehead complaining about the "wrecklessness" of bloggers.

    So much for professional writers, huh?
