On meet the Press today David Brooks said something astoundingly ignorant. Earlier in the panel discussion on the sale of the WaPo and digital media Kara Swisher said this:
Kara Swisher: I think the issue is why you have to separate them, and why you have to assume that everything on the internet is poorly done. and everything in regular newspapers is well done. That's not the case at all.Well David Brooks couldn't let that pass so later in the discussion he had come back to the issue to smear bloggers.
David Brooks: Hey I think the audience has changed on line. I think there has been a return to authority. You know I used to read blogs, and they be kind of be reading something kind of interesting and then the blogger would write well I got to quit now I'm going off to Junior High.
Kara Swisher: Oh come on!
I'd just like to note that this blogger is 12 years David Brooks' senior.
