Anatomy of a Blogger

Anatomy of a Blogger

Once again the desperate dinosaurs of the failing mainstream media ape the innovations of the Blogosphere:

On March 21st, while riding through the millionaire-infested Hamptons, celebrity stunt journalist Matt Lauer of NBC’s Today Show dislocated a shoulder falling off his bicycle after dodging a deer.

On March 23rd, fading sports star Lance Armstrong, desperate for publicity, crashed into the news by bumping his bike into the spandex-clad speedsters of the Vuelta Ciclista Castilla y León in Spain. gets the Yellow Jersey, though, having dislocated a shoulder a full month ago. We did not resort to using $9,000 custom-fitted Trek Madone 6.9 Pro bicycles to do it, either. In deference to the current economic downturn, we followed the lead of DC’s thrifty contingent workers and took a header on Metro station tiles (cost: $1.65). Given such enormous differences in operating costs, the conventional corporate media are clearly doomed.

Comments are welcome if they are on-topic, substantive, concise, and not obscene. Comments may be edited for clarity and length (Note: we already know that Matt Lauer’s late father was a bicycle company executive and that Lauer and Armstrong were wearing helmets and the deer was not).
