Just Read This: Joseph Rago on ‘The Blog Mob’

You can decide whether Mr. Rago, who is an assistant editorial features editor at The Wall Street Journal, makes some valid points, or is a jerk engaging in arrogance beyond comprehension who can’t handle a brave new world.

I suspect there may be quite a bit of blog response to this (you don’t say? — Ed.). I might collect some of it at times during the day if it seems like it’s going somewhere. Update: Nah — click on the link at Update 2 for plenty of links to other commentary.

UPDATE: Heh — Day by Day catches a typo.

UPDATE 2, 11:30 AM: Here’s a freeze-frame as of a couple of minutes ago at Memeorandum.

UPDATE 3, 7:35 PM (post carried forward): The Memeo lineup has, as you would expect, grown, and the Rago piece is the top story.



  1. Rago’s just mad because we were named Time’s Person of the Year. Congratulations on that, by the way.

  3. The Contempt Of Fools…

    We are less hurt by the contempt of fools than by the lukewarm approval of men of intelligence. Luc de Clapiers de Vauvenargues (1715-1747)

    Read the incredibly pompous opinion in the Opinion Journal by Joseph Rago and see which category you…
