Not surprisngly, Ana Marie Cox is all caught up in the storm of nothing over Salon‘s Alex Pareene’s Hack 30 List. It’s Salon‘s take on who are the worst pundits in America. Cox says over Twitter that she’d like to be #31. This morning she went on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” in a jumper to promote a GQ story she wrote on Admiral Mike Mullen. But before that, this week she nominated “the cast of Morning Joe” for the Hack list — right, that “hack” cast who invited her on the show in the first place.
Make no mistake. Being on the list is no accolade, but Cox will take what she can get. Salon describes the deeper meaning behind the list: “These are the most predictable, banal, intellectually dishonest and all-around hacky newspaper columnists, cable news shouting heads and political opinion-mongers working today.”
Nice work Cox.
