Pajama Media Part Two

November 16, 2005

I’ve enjoyed reading Tony Pierce for a while. He has a pretty easy going stream of consciousness approach to blogging that makes him easy to read. It’s kind of like Raymi’s Blog, but Tony makes a lot more sense. He has a several good points I completely missed when I discussed the Pajama People from yesterday, so I’d like to touch on a few of them.

And just in case someone comes along later, I’m claiming rights to the name “The Pajama People” when dealing with creepy Stepfordesque bloggers in book or movie form. You’ve been warned.

Anyway, Tony’s article is here.

Highlights include:

“…the Pajamas Media trainwreck is headed to the big apple… Judith Miller will be giving their keynote address. Yes that Judith Miller. Presumably because Jayson Blair and Armstrong Williams were busy…”

“When even midwesterners like Ann Althouse take a pass while calling PM revenue scheme “skimpy compared to Blogads” you’re either holding out on the B-list (your base) or you’re off on a really bad foot.”

“60+ Conservatives and 2 Liberals does not make…the best of mainstream media and best of blog media…It makes for a Fox News”

Simply beautiful, and 100% correct. Read the rest at Tony’s link above.
