UnNews:OpEd Columns Editorials Letters/OpEd
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
Uncyclopedia is proud to present a special editorial from Glenn Fitzgerald, author of the best-seller Why The National Socialist Party Still Pisses Me Off. Glenn is the senior editor of The Daily Weekly Times, but is currently on loan to us here at UnNews. When he isn't too busy vandalizing his own online biography, Wikipedia "founder" Jimbo Wales puts on a shirt to cover his bushy chest and actually leaves his house to do what he thinks is contributing to the world.
Ones of these self-inflating ego boosts he did recently was attend the "Changing Media Summit 2010", hosted by The Guardian. I attended the summit, being a highly respected senior editor of daily periodical, with high expectations of intelligent debate and original ideas, only to witness Jimbo Wales spewing his diarrhea of the mouth. Among the things of which he commented was that dying media known as the newspaper. It seems ol' Jimbo isn't too big on opinion pieces. One would immediately assume he simply doesn't want any competition to cut into his monopoly on personal bias and inaccurate information in place of objective fact, yet that doesn't seem to be the case. Straight from the horse's mouth:
|I find that the best of the political bloggers are easily equal of the best opinion columnists at the New York Times. I don't see the added value there and I question whether newspapers should be paying large sums of money for that anymore.|
