Journalism consumer, you are a confused sort.
You are unable to process news as it exists on your television, radio or as you read it. It is too much, too fast, and you are not fit to discern what is and what is not credible. But, traditional media sympathize for you because it’s not your fault. It is those awful, nasty, bottom-feeding, basement-living, underwear-wearing, couch-riding, no-nothing bloggers who have muddied your information stream.
