Never one to shy away from the Big Issues facing journalism, the National Press Club is hosting a panel next Friday consisting of Washington’s finest new media types: Wonkette, Jeff Gannon, and Fishbowl D.C. (that’s us). The subject? Blogging and journalism, of course.
It may be hard to imagine, but even a panel on journalism consisting of your run-of-the-mill disgraced former male escort, the star of Lucky’s latest fashion shoot, and a former liberal political hack is <a href="causing controversy, and led AmericaBlog’s John Aravosis to declare “National Press Club is the MSM’s latest whore.” Something about how “real” journalists who talk about “facts” should be included. Blah, blah, blah.
We can’t wait. Maybe we can get someone to live blog it for the benefit of posterity. It’s free and open to the public if you want to view the carnage in person.
