Note to self: If the Blogstigator wants to be President one day, he shouldn't blog like this
Gawker never humored Perez Hilton with a reply, so maybe I'll be getting some sleep tonight instead of worrying about Manhattan imploding in a Godzilla v. Mothra style superbattle...not that I'd mind said implosion. (Chartreuse
noticed that the Blog Herald pulled their coverage, but they're crying server problem.)
Michelle Malkin appears to be on a vendetta against art
! (One of these days I will need to find someone new to pick on, but this is the final roundup, so maybe tomorrow.)
america deblogged,...or not
Via thie Media Buyer Planner article
, a Gallup poll
is claiming that only “one in five Web users read Web-logs, or ‘blogs,’ either frequently or occasionally.” But honestly, with his Firefox RSS subscription button popping up at the sight of nearly any page on the net these days, the Blogstigator wonders how all those people actually avoid
reading blogs. Obviously this means that a lot of web users don't know a blog when they see it, but maybe this intuition is more correct. After all, is CNN really a blog
is it voyeurism? or just a blog?
the growing trend of reporters using information people post about themselves online, be it a blog, a photo album, or an online profile:“
While some think it adds a "human element" to some of the drama, others find it a bit voyeuristic. They're probably both right.”
Maybe, or, as the Blogstigator muses, this is just what happens when lazy journalists
join forces with exhibitionists

In retrospect, it's hard to imagine that the man who created this:
. . . had anything to do with the semi-logical backslap at Gawker yesterday. It's also hard to imagine he's an elitist.
, an intricate web of barely-legible political satire, the only referrence to those five-month-old Danish cartoons the Blogstigator can still stomach (one week old, but still fresh as hell).Michelle Malkin still hasn't heard about post-modernity
, and other than that there's not a hell of a lot going on out there this weekend. The Blogstigator's going back to bed.
apparently it wasn't “friends only”
Digital Spy is reporting
that model/reality show contestant Jodie Marsh's blog, in which she made disparaging comments about hoursemates, got a little leaky, and she's taking flack from a charity for which she's an ambassador:“
The model has used her weblog to make unfavourable comments about her former housemates and children's charity Beatbullying has admitted that these conflict with her work as their ambassador. 'We regret some statements have been perceived as conflicting with her work,' a spokesperson told The Mirror
. 'We do not endorse any of our ambassador's personal opinions.'”
I didn't know D-list slashy celebs were allowed to keep personal blogs. I'll need to keep my eye out for Kathy Griffin's Xanga.
UPDATE: Apparently this was the blog on her official website
. And we all thought she was being a model because she was pretty.
blood in the water
The Blog Herald
drew the Blogstigator's attention to the fact that Perez Hilton
thinks Gawker Media hates America
First, allow me to point out that everyone who reads Gawker is
“beautiful and healthy.” Perez's snarky leak makes me wonder if he's not a bit sore about Gawker's spin
on his recent spat with publicist Jose Martinez — which in turn makes me wonder if he hasn't been picking an awful lot of fights lately. Perez even parodies Gawker's slam against him in his slam against them.
Will Perez, who is already well on his way, secure his place as Gawker's new Page Six? Is he even worth their energy?
