Quote of the Day

Shysterball, before eviscerating that laughable Stephen A. Smith interview, writes this:

I don't normally care to get involved in the MSM vs. Blogger wars because I get enough hyperbole and senseless argument from my day job. Everyone involved in this stuff spends so much time talking past one another and employs so much overheated rhetoric that the debate, such as it is, rarely rises above ridiculously cheap theater. Note to newspaper men: most bloggers aren't reporting news, and when they do, their credibility is being judged just as much as yours is. If the info is bad, the market will make them pay. If it is good, they're doing a good job, right? Note to bloggers: this is not 1789 and ESPN and the sports page of your local daily are not the Bastille. Please get over yourselves.
When Smith's forthcoming lawsuit against the Inquirer goes to trial, I really hope Brian Tierney's lawyers read his quote, verbatim. They should mention this, too.
