New Post ME John Temple on Weymouth’s Off-the-Record Dinners, Paul Farhi
In an August 2009 blog post, he criticized Post media reporter Paul Farhi after Farhi said in a Post chat that bloggers are “mostly about themselves and their opinions, with little thought given to where they’re getting their basic facts.”
Temple comes out shooting in his post, with a strident headline (“
Washington Post’s Paul Farhi resorts to generalizations about bloggers that wouldn’t make it past any good newspaper editor”), and a speedy escalation:
Most newspaper newsrooms today are full of bloggers. And there are thousands of bloggers producing original content of value. Let’s replace bloggers with the word “Democrats” and see how his thinking sounds. “I guess the Democrats don’t really care about any of that. They’re mostly about themselves and their opinions.” Or how about Jews: “I guess the Jews don’t really care about any of that. They’re mostly about themselves and their opinions.”
How did Jewish people get pulled into this?
