Meet The Relics

Hat Tip to Gateway Pundit

So how do the geniuses at Meet the Press respond to the resignation of Van Jones? They decide to piss all over the internet. I think bloggers, and the internet at large, anger some in the MSM, because they can no longer dictate the narrative. The internet has robbed the MSM of its position as the gatekeeper of what is and isn’t newsworthy. It is because of online resources that consumers are determining what is newsworthy, rather than an incestuous cabal living in a fishbowl. One of the more vocal critiques of the internet was Thomas Friedman of the New York Times.

Friedman, the bastard child of Christopher Hewett and a large rodent, proved just how out of touch some are in the MSM. He first used the Van Jones case to argue that you can’t be a public figure if you ever say anything controversial. I think Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor is proof that Friedman’s argument is deeply flawed. You can say stupid and controversial things, while still remaining viable as a public figure. However, if you repeatedly engage in the abject lunacy of somebody like Van Jones, Bill Ayers, or Reverend Wright, you should rightly be considered unqualified to hold a position of influence.

Friedman later commented that every modem should include a warning label that says, “judgment not included.” It’s a cute little jab at those who get the news from the net, but we would be better served if that label was placed on President Obama’s forehead, as well as members of the MSM who carry water for him. And by a happy coincidence…

judgment not included

There are legitimate critiques of news on the net, but the case of Van Jones is an example where the net got it right.

    For weeks Glenn Beck has being hammering away at Van Jones. The MSM
    ignored him. They only praised Van Jones. They did not question
    his philosophy, his outrageous comments, his racism, nothing. They
    gave him a free pass. Now they are blaming the internet for bringing forth the truth. What phonies. How frightening. They
    will remain relics, and soon disappear.
