Once a snob…
: Kurt Andersen, the original snarkmeister, gets snotty about blogs.
Jeff: I disagree – I thought he was actually supportive of the blog idea; he just thought “more original reporting, less reaction to other people’s news.”
The comment about second-rate thoughts sounded snotty, but I don’t think he was saying blogs in general are second-rate; he was saying that because he wants to get paid for his writing, the only content he was going to put out for free was his second-rate stuff. Whether you agree with his approach or not, I didn’t take it as insulting to blogs.
