Well, maybe not. It’s not a label I’ve ever actively sought. Then again, the decentralization of information means — here, let Robert Stacy McCain tell you:
The idea that people are using Tweets from an actress to stay updated on the latest news is perhaps no stranger than the idea that I, sitting here in my pajamas, can treat Alyssa Milano and Bob Belvedere as equals. Regular blog consumers probably wouldn’t even notice that contrast if I didn’t call it to their attention, because you have become accustomed to reading Charles G. Hill or Dan Collins cited as authorities equal (or superior) to bigtime pundits like Paul Krugman of the New York Times and Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post. The Deciders have lost their authority to decide.
A couple of notes:
- Bob Belvedere, unlike Alyssa Milano, isn’t pregnant.
- I am a lot less issue-oriented than Dan Collins.
- Finally, someone in blogdom who admits to wearing pajamas.
Okay, three notes. So I can count as least as well as Krugman. And yes, Ms Milano is much easier on the eyes than anyone else mentioned herein.
