Paul Carr wrote a stupid piece of curmudgeonry: After Fort Hood, another example of how ‘citizen journalists’ can’t handle the truth which motivated several good rebuttals: Tweeting from the scene: Citizen journalism or ‘tragi-porn’? and Citizen journalism: I’ll take it, flaws and all and Killing straw men. In the same curmudgeounly vein – see Don’t Tweet On Me. And on similar topics: Walking The Story Back, Why the mainstream media is dying and Toward a Slow-News Movement.

Mentioning GOP in an article at all and especially without warning they are insane is dereliction of journalistic duty that keeps GOP alive. But of course, keeping GOP zombie alive is needed for the ‘conflict’ storytelling and HeSaidSheSaid false balance “reporting”.
