Son, what we have here is a failure to communicate

One of the things I'm enjoying about Rathergate is how the dinosaur press is feeling like they need to do an article on "the blogosphere for beginners" to explain what all the fuss is about.

What's funny is that they think they can do the article and bloggers won't, you know, do what we do: viciously and instantaneously respond.

Case in point: the righteous fisking laid down on Newsday by Ace of Spades. Think back alley, tire iron to the knee caps, bottle broken over the head. Surly biker and a J-School type. The result is beautiful.

I'm waiting for the night soon when Marvin Kalb or some old hand has to utter the word "fisking" in one of these "what's gone wrong with journalizm" panels on cable.

Goldstein lays down some painful smack as well.
