BOTH ACE and Josh Marshall are pretty down on this blog-bashing column by Michael Skube. Skube’s credibility is somewhat undercut as he doesn’t seem to actually, you know, read the blogs he writes about. “Perhaps I’m naive. But it surprises me a great deal that a professor of journalism freely admits that he allows to appear under his own name claims about a publication he concedes he’s never read.”

Well, I dunno. This seems to be the modus operandi for the journalistic establishment these days.

UPDATE: A transparency problem.
