The Declarer (Floyd McWilliams' Blog)

Wednesday, May 21, 2003

Remember when Drudge first became popular and he would be invited to give a keynote speech at conventions full of media folks who despised him? He would mention recent scandals in which television news or newspaper reporters had fallen down on the job, just to rub it in his detractors' faces that it wasn't just guys with fedoras who made mistakes.

If Drudge were to pull that trick now, he wouldn't have time for the body of an address. It would resemble the scene in Man in The Moon where Kaufman gets done reading a Dickens book and finds that only one person from his audience is left.

Glenn Reynolds has a summary of the latest media scandals over at his MSNBC site. Remember that these contretemps are all at most two months old.
