Yeah, and I got my uniform, too.
This from Crooks:
"You're going to be up against people who have an opinion, a modem, and a bathrobe. All of my life, developing credentials to cover my field of work, and now I'm up against a guy named Vinny in an efficiency apartment in the Bronx who hasn't left the efficiency apartment in two years" — Brian Williams, anchor of the "NBC Nightly News," speaking before New York University journalism students on the challenges traditional journalism faces from online media.
Brian, Brian. First of all, you should be so lucky to be up against Vinny. You're up against Driftglass, QuakerDave, Norbizness, Blogenfreude, oh sweet Jesus (General) I've gotta stop. Look at my damn blogroll, and I just mentioned a couple of the guys, here. (Women bloggers? Heh, you could not compete there fo' sho', hon.) These bloggers, all of them, have more brains in their typing fingers than you've got in your little head (not going there).
And Brian? I know nothing about the development of your credentials, but your current field of work is "TV talking head." That may be some sort of career pinnacle where you come from, but this bathrobed babe is not impressed. I've gotta hot date with the bloggers listed above, and you can take your developed credentials and be "up against Vinny" all night long.
