Meet the Pipsqueaks

In alpha order (this may be the only time you see yours truly on the far left of anything :–>):

Engine starter: Cleveland PD Reader Rep wants to charge for content in first 24 hours; calls bloggers “a bunch of pipsqueaks out there talking about what real journalists do” (at 10:00 mark of video at link; HT The Future of Journalism).

More at 11 1 a.m. — Post is here.

In the meantime, enjoy this stirring, somewhat discofied rendition of “Midnight Train to Georgia” by Gladys Knight & the Pips (not Pipsqueaks):

Interim questions: Who did the original work that led to this Plain Dealer story? WhoWho? WhoWho?

  2. Okay – this post made me laugh.

    I finally watched the clip today. I honestly don’t know what to say – that’s printable anyway.

  3. Even though I’m one, its not really unfair to call bloggers pipsqueaks. Its fun to laugh at older reporters who despise the internet, but Jill sounds truly angry- When she might be the Queen Pipsqueaker.

  4. #3, oh stop it. This is my fun post.

    There’s another one I just put up. It’s not angry, more like disgusted, but the post did bring back some unprintable thoughts that occurred at the time.
