The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Quote of the week

You really need to read the entirety of Douglas Kern's dismembering of the hapless Eric Engberg at Tech Central Station, but the choicest bit comes at the point where Engberg complains that bloggers and such like don't have access to the "experts" employed by Big Media, to which Kern replies:

What were you [specifically, Slate] thinking — publishing information without access to the cautions being provided by the [National Election] pool's experts? That's halfway to being a hate crime. Why, journalism without expert gatekeepers is like ice cream without Worcestershire sauce.

I anticipate a rocky road for big-name journos over the next few years.

...rocky road...

With or without Worcestershire sauce? ;-)
