Bissinger vs. Blogs

I finally caught the Bob Costas sports media special tonight- the first half of it, anyway- and oh lord! I knew Buzz Bissinger was eccentric, but had no idea he was completely crazy:

Thoughts: I renew my usual objection to any sort of 100 percent generalizations of big media as a whole, or blogging as a whole. Something isn’t stupid just because it’s on a blog, nor is it genius.
Similarly, Bissinger doesn’t sound like he’s, you know, spent much time on blogs, and therefore has no idea what he’s talking about. Loud, ignorant and profane is no way to go through life, son.
In all, though, what I’ve seen of the special so far was top-notch; Michael Strahan telling off that idiot Chris Russo was especially a highlight. More on this later.
