In a move that will make Robert Wright feel even smarter than he already is, Bloggingheads.TV — perhaps the only place where you can see the faces of Ezra Klein and Mickey Kaus near each other — has joined up with The New York Times. And, in the same way that the Yankees made Johnny Damon shave his beard, we worry that the prestigious NYTimes will make Wright put down his trademark Styrofoam cup.
“Three times each week a Bloggingheads “diavlog” will be excerpted on NYTimes.com,” states the announcement. “Viewers who want to watch more of the conversation will be directed to Bloggingheads.tv, where the whole diavlog will appear.”
See today’s Times segment here.
And, yes: Ridiculous word of the day? “Diavlog.”
And do us a favor readers: Go to Bloggingheads.TV, and send us your best screen captures of Wright giving his best smart face. We’d do it ourselves, but it’s almost too easy.
