"I hate bloggers." "Worst development in media business, anyone can be a blogger." "No credentials required, just spouting off their opinions." "Our wives could go on and do it if they wanted to.". . . is probably now going to need his wife to go out and get a job. That is, if she can take time away from her blog, entitled "myhusbandisachauvinistbastard.com."
On a more thoughtful note, I'll say that Chass' attitude towards bloggers was particularly rich seeing as though the Times (a) has a baseball blog of its own; and (b) has something like thirty-six other blogs. They may not do it well (I kinda like Bats, but some of the other ones are rather sad), but at a time when the company is trying its damnedest to throw some bloghetti against the wall to see what sticks, Murray seemed even more disconnected than usual.
Note to Murray: ShysterBall could use a weekend editor. I need to see your credentials first, though, because not just anyone can do it.
