I’m not sure what to think of Doonesbury this morning. Trudeau continues with the blogging theme, but today’s cartoon seems aimless–too many targets. But at least Trudeau is focusing in on the type of bloggers he wants to criticize: the hobbyist. He’s bravely calling attention to the legion of bloggers, by far the majority, who use their blogs to indulge personal interests. Why comment on Glenn Reynolds or Josh Marshall when you can shine the light on “Jenny McTagarty, Girl Pirate”?
The Rhetorica Network
I offer commentary on the rhetoric of the American conversation, especially as it unfolds in documentary film, the news media, and politics. Check out my feeds on Twitter and Instagram. Also be sure to see my work at Carbon Trace Productions, a non-profit documentary film studio in Springfield, Missouri. I am a Professor of Media & Journalism at Missouri State University. I teach classes in mobile journalism and documentary filmmaking.
