Power to the unpopular and Brown bashing
Philisophically Made has been posing many a soul-searching, life-the-universe-and-everything questions recently and in particular what the point of a blog is, exactly. I gave them my definition:
"The least popular people using the widest possible medium to convey the most unfounded ideas to the smallest possible audience for the minutist of effects."
Give, or take, that's pretty much it really.
By way of an argument I mentioned this:
The comments section is important too. Russell Brown, for example, can post something ridiculous like today's little effort on how TV One should never ever question MAF or other government authorities and he can "get away with it" as it were because we can't see the comments [on his site]. Maybe people just give up reading him altogether because of things like that. "Hard news" indeed! The moment someone questions the Labour government they become irresponsible and not behaving like good little journalists. What a joke.
