I shall choose to look on this as an accomplishment. Since some time Saturday, Keith Olbermann has been blocking feminist tweeters using the tag #MooreandMe and directing calls to Keith Olbermann (@keitholbermann) and Michael Moore (@mmflint) for retractions of and apologies for the deliberately inaccurate information they they aired via Twitter and cable T.V. to hundreds of thousands of their fans.
As of some point this afternoon, I got to join the illustrious company of People Keith Olbermann Has Blocked On Twitter. We even have our own hashtag, #WeveBeenKOed.
I’ve done something to my shoulder, and typing up a review today has just not been possible. Not much of anything besides sitting watching tv with an ice pack has been possible. So instead of writing I’m watching Princess Bride, and hoping to be up to typing tomorrow.
In the meanwhile, have a demotivator:
In a badly-edited statement on the Cooks Source website, editor Judith Griggs of the Great Copyright Scandal of 2010 has offered an apology, of sorts, and made good on Monica Gaudio’s request for a contribution in her name to the Columbia School of Journalism.
We have cancelled our Facebook page on Thursday, November 4th, 2010 at 6:00PM. It has since been since been hacked by unknown parties and now someone else unknown to us has control of it.
It’s called ‘angry internet people posting on your wall’, dear.
In her statement, Griggs also promises to actually vet her sources and contributors in the future, and make sure that everything they print is with the copyright holder’s permission. All of which she should have been doing in the first place.
