I just took off my robe, jackass.

"You're going to be up against people who have an opinion, a modem, and a bathrobe. All of my life, developing credentials to cover my field of work, and now I'm up against a guy named Vinny in an efficiency apartment in the Bronx who hasn't left the efficiency apartment in two years"
-Brian Williams, anchor of the "NBC Nightly News," speaking before New York University journalism students on the challenges traditional journalism faces from online media.

It's hilarious that a largely irrelevant college dropout television newscaster has the gall to call out bloggers for being pathetic.

Seriously, though. Who am I going to believe? The fact checking, meticulous blogger or the talking head who just reads what's on the teleprompter?

This is totally weak, you lame-ass blogger.

You don't have a college education! Oh wait...neither does..
