Tim e-mails to opine about local "action" news, Rather's unraveling, and what not to wear while writing:
I saw your post about local news reporting about the internet and the need for the footage to show typing and the clicking of computer keyboard keys. I noticed the same thing, and our local reporters here cannot give a live report without walking from where they're standing to some more advantageous spot, even though we're only talking about 10 feet. It's like they're proving they can chew gum and walk at the same time.
Secondly, about the memos kerfluffle. I really couldn't care less except for the fact that the story has not allowed the Kerry camp to get their messages covered. My wildest hope and dream would be that the other MSM demands to know who verified these documents for CBS, and who gave them to CBS. Wouldn't it be great if it turned out that Michael Moore gave the documents to CBS, hoping it would deflect the heat from Kerry? I really wouldn't be surprised if it turned out that some Democratic stooge thought that the only way to get Kerry back on track would be to embellish a story that is four years old and has been thoroughly exhausted by now, and found a willing taker in CBS.
I don't get all of these attempts at discrediting bloggers by speculating what you may chose to wear or not wear while you are blogging. Am I to believe that Jennings, Brokaw and Rather really are wearing pants under that desk they sit behind? Puh-leeze!! Just for the record, I am writing this in a pair of tighty-whitey Fruit-of-the Looms, purchased form K-Mart.
File that memo under "Too Much Information". I was thinking about the latest snide speculation regarding the dress code of bloggers and realized that I fall under both broad categorizations. For in my world there is no dichotomy between underwear and pajamas. They are one and the same. Talk about TMI.
Tune in tomorrow for another riveting post on the personal habits of bloggers called, "Gold Bond: Your Secret Weapon In The Chafing Wars."
