For John, BLUF: Bloggers get no respect. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Earlier we talked about the media and politics and the use of the term "crazies" to talk about Republicans. The blog post was "Gubernatorial Election".♠
Tuesday Law Professor Ann Althouse commented on an interview with New York Senator Chuck Schumer, "Chuck Schumer says both left- and right-wing blogs are too vicious and negative but the difference is: Left-wing blogs 'have less credibility and less clout'." Ms Althouse does excerpts from Senator Schumer's interview with Reporter Isaac Chotiner of The New Republic. And there are lots of Comments.
Left-wing blogs are the mirror image. They just have less credibility and less clout.Ouch!♥

♠ We even had a comment to the blog from a Democrat political operative here in Lowell. Funnily enough, he has two daughters.
♥ Is this bad news for Left in Lowell and Dick Howell's blog? Is this the real reason for the demise of Gerry Nutter's blog?
