The bloke from The Devil's Kitchen is doing it by saying "fuck" a lot, and who can blame him?
Quite. Mind you, it's customary in blogging circles to link to those blogs which one mentions.
And so, in the spirit of my described trait (to which I'll add some bad-tempered churlishness), I'd like to ask Michael a question: where the fuck's my link...?
Anyway, your humble Devil will be back tomorrow for some blogging fun. Probably.
UPDATE: The Longrider comments on Bywater's snide little sideswipe...
The general gist, though is that we aren’t in the same league as professional journalists. We aren’t. We tend to be a little more careful with our facts and if we get it wrong, will openly correct our copy. We engage with readers and, generally, exercise higher standard of ethical behaviour.
When it comes down to it, the professional journalist is only a fag paper away from the politician when it comes to disinformation, failure to check facts, misleading statistics, propaganda and downright lies – so, yes, I am not in the same league at all and would need to scrub myself down with sulphuric acid and a steel loofah if I ever became contaminated by one.
Harsh but, I think, entirely fair. Although I think he misses another salient point: we bloggers will investigate stories that the journos wouldn't touch, such as ClimateGate.
