From Patterico’s Pontifications comes this bit that is so rich, it has to be read to be believed! I first saw it ar Free Republic — Helen Thomas *cough* says that bloggers don’t have the standards and ethics of the media dinosaurs.

“What I really worry about is that I think the bloggers and everyone, everyone with a laptop thinks they’re journalists,” Thomas said. “And, they certainly don’t have our standards. They don’t have our ethics, and so forth. There’s a deterioration.”

I am literally laughing out loud at this old windbag! She must be worried about going the way of Dan Rather! Wouldn’t that be nice!
