Michael Gee, ex-Boston Herald sports writer, posted his ill-advised commentary on the ?incredibly hot? student with the ?bitchin? bod? on a message board. Check out the WaPo article, and click on the link to the ?blog? Robert MacMillan cites: SportsJournalists.com.
There is no blog present.
What you see is called a message board, or a forum, and has existed for quite a long time.
By calling this a ?blog,? MacMillan stamps this sordid little episode with a certain stigma – throw in blogging vs. journalism and ?should educators blog?? and you end up with the oh-so juicy headline ?Do
n’tBlog So Close To Me.?
Love the headline, hate the complete lack of attention being paid to different methods of communication. —Ryan Sholin —The Washington Post Doesn’t Know a Blog from a Message Board (Ryan Sholin’s J-School Blog)
