Poison in the Blogosphere and an Ailing Canary in Rhode Island
Every couple of years, it seems, a student from Brown will contact me for comment in an article about blogging for the Brown Daily Herald. It’s traditionally been a unifying topic: although we’ve got different emphases, we Rhode Island bloggers will all agree about the value and opportunities that the medium offers, not the least because it sets the stage for open public discussion of important matters.
This time around, the reporter’s final question, yesterday, was whether I had any response to Pat Crowley’s assertion to her that we at Anchor Rising are fascists.
What a shame the Rhode Island Left has allowed that guy such a visible place in the local public discourse. More’s the shame that nobody on their side will denounce him. And the biggest shame of all is that he comes to us courtesy of our state’s teachers.
