My old buddy is at it again
. How dare a newspaper cover the netkooks with anything less than reverence?
Beach described the gathering in stereotypes that better fit the aging Old Left of years ago than the much younger Netroots of today. I mean, how many of these bloggers have ever read much of Chomsky, as he suggested?
Much younger Netroots? I would remind people that although some of the liberal bloggers are youthful, many of them have graying ponytails. As for how many of them have read Chomsky, I'd suspect a fair number. Including Greg. Anyway the purpose of the story seems to be how Greg got the newspaper to spike the article.
Anyway, King informed me that the comments from Beach’s article had been wiped and it was impossible to find the article on the paper’s Web site, though it might still be there somewhere. Perhaps, he mused, "some editor finally looked at the piece and yanked it out of simple embarrassment."
Later Monday, I found the link to the original article on Google – and now the story had been removed from the site completely and was "not available."
Great job, Greg! Maybe for your next task, you could take on burning some conservative books!
