Hinterland Diary

What the founder of USA Today has to say about the quality of most blogs . . .

Quoth Al Neuharth: 'Interesting Bullshit'

He also reads blogs -- "more than I'd care to mention" -- but doesn't have a particularly high regard for them. "Most of them, when I read them, I say, 'This is a lot of interesting bullshit,'" he says. "But what bothers me about bloggers is there's a growing sentiment that maybe the government should exercise some control over them. I'm totally opposed to that." He likens today's bloggers to the pamphleteers whose incendiary writing helped bring about the American Revolution.

On the other hand, he reads more blogs "than I'd care to mention." Hmm. From Jeff Bercovici's blog post for Portfolio magazine.
