A Voice of the New Media

Care to read Jeff Gannon's new blog? I stumbled upon this gem by way of AMERICAblog

Here's our first-impression analysis:

The header? Laughable at best. The blog is aptly titled "Jeff Gannon: A Voice of the New Media." Listen bub, if this "new media" is the one where prostitutes glorify themselves to the status of "journalist", we're not interested.

His tagline is "So feared by the Left it had to take me down". [wipes away tears of laughter.] Nope, I think you pretty much brought that upon yourself, didn't ya?

In his profile, he claims he is "baaaaaaack!" And states that "Despite all the pleas from the Left to go over to the 'dark side' and expose the 'corrupt Bush administration' simply isn't going to happen." I'm not sure those were "pleas" so much as detailed evidence tying you to some, ahem, illegal activities.

As for his content, he seems very content with blogging about, um, himself. More specifically, the press coverage of him and his recent career-crushing fiasco.
