Can You Trust the Tubes?

David Bullard, writing in the Sunday Times:
Unlike the world of newsprint, there are no rules out there in the blogosphere and that makes it a very confusing place for the consumer. I have no objection to reading my Sunday Times on the Internet because I know the content has been through the same process as the print edition. I do, however, object to some anonymous, scrofulous nerd pumping meaningless drivel into cyberspace at all hours of the day and night simply because he can’t find a girl to sleep with him. These are the sort of wackos who gun down their fellow students at university. I visited a site the other day that was so hideously racist that it would have qualified its publisher for a long spell in prison if it had appeared in print.
I love it. He's OK with reading an electronic version of a paper. Easy there, don't get too far out ahead of the technology curve David. As for the "scrofulous nerd pumping meaningless drivel...". Where can Baylen find one of these guys? He'd sign up a worker like that in a heartbeat. He gets meaningless drivel from us now; but with no where near a routine schedule like "all hours of the day and night".

What about his throw-a-way comment accusing these unspecified bloggers as "...the sort of wackos who gun down their fellow students at university." Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Virginia Tech killer, Cho, wrote disturbing plays and short stories. Not blog posts. On second thought, I guess I shouldn't take David Bullard and his ludicrous statements seriously. After all, I did read it on the Internet.
