Today’s unintentionally revealing old-media quote comes from Dante Chinni, writing in the Christian Science Monitor on “journalism’s fear and loathing of blogs”:
To be a serious blogger–one who can devote his time and energy to the job–one needs to make a name for himself, sell ad space, and get paid.
Hear that, all you hopelessly unserious amateur artbloggers who have a life? You’re nothing. Nothing. (As opposed to, say, the author of “a twice-monthly political opinion column for the Monitor.”)
