Pathetic blog basher’s cry for attention
: Frank Barnako is trying to turn himself into John Dvorak or Andrew Orlowski: Desperate for attention and traffic, he decides to bash bloggers with the sure knowledge — this being the proof — that they will will link to the idiocy. So here’s your link, Frank. But you’re full of crap. If you think blogs are so damned worthless, why did you just start one? The worst of it is that it is a nonsequetorial headache:
Blogs were quick to publish real or made-up exit polls at midafternoon, showing Kerry strength. That killed a 60-point rally in the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
At least some traders read blogs, then, and act on what they read. Not so, it would appear, young voters. Advertisers including Nike (NKE: news, chart, profile) and Audi think Weblogs are the medium to reach young consumers. So where was the youth and minority vote? Not reading political blogs, it appears. MSNBC says the percentage of young voters who cast ballots was the same as it was four years ago.
Huh? Whoever said that blogs were going to bring out the youth vote. Whoever said that blogs were young (see picture: right)? Makes no friggin sense. But you got your link, Frank.
