Demonstrating once again the old “anything new media can do I can do better” spirit, the New York Times gave restaurant critic Frank Bruni a blog. And, because they want to get back on Jay Rosen’s good side, they have comments. Comments which have already proved their value as a means of “extending the conversation” or whatever the hell blogs are supposed to do. To wit:
Dear Mr. Bruni,
I find it valuable that you were reporting from the White House.
Are they canibals? Being now a restaurant critic you could throw some lite also on the background of policy making.
Come on. “Cannibals” is unfair. While this administration may hunt Man, it’s purely for the sport.
