NFL MEDIA BLOGGER TOLD, "YOU BLOGGERS ARE CONSPIRACY THEORISTS"

Now I get it. If you simply type, "I just saw this" or "I just heard or read that," you have a good chance of being ridiculed as a "CONSPIRACY THEORIST," as this NFL media watch blogger was. The put-down of the blogger said in effect, it doesn't matter if the big guys are good or bad because they have all the marbles. The NFL media blogger likes MNF and looks to the new ESPN ombudsman, Le Anne Schreiber to address his concerns. (4/6/06) He says:
  • "Schreiber sounds reasonable, and I liked her debut column. I hope when she says she'll see how the new lineup works on MNF, she means she'll thoroughly explore what ESPN is doing with its most expensive and most popular property. Replacing Joe Theismann with Ron Jaworski was a great step in the right direction. Now Kornheiser needs to improve."
Here's the mental-case put-down by the elitist to the serf:
  • "2. Nothing personal Michael, but instead of the conspiracy theories, why do you bloggers never mention the Nielsen ratings? MNF is supposedly ESPN's highest-rated show.

SO THE BLOGGER'S COMMENT POINT IS COMPLETELY IGNORED, HE'S ACCUSED OF BEING A WACKO FRINGE GEEK. THE PAYOFF: WOW, BIG RATINGS. BIG. RIGHT. WHERE IS THE LINK TO THE RATINGS, DEMOS, TRENDS, SKEW, QUALITATIVE, ETC. FORGET IT--WE'RE BIG SO SHUT-UP.

  • This is a good example of how the internet facilitates hate-speech spammers. They quickly demonize a civil, truthful or factual voice. As noted in the Washington Post column on the subject (posted here), this environment causes legitimate voices to stay away.

From NFL-Media-Watch.aolsportsblog.com, 4/6/06. Sorry for all the facts and evidence.
