I’m actually somewhat astonished by this. Jim Thompson, with the the Athens Banner-Herald, devoted an entire column to smacking around Peach Pundit commenter SevenHillsDem for a comment SevenHillsDem left in this post about the ABH endorsing Nate Pulliam, despite his far right positions about “Christmas holidays” and “In God We Trust” on currency.
Well, at least they are in touch with the blogosphere.
[UPDATE:] I’m coming back to this one. You know, I’m flattered that someone at the Athens Banner-Herald felt the need to respond to a commenter at Peach Pundit, but it strikes me as totally lame and very silly that a newspaper felt the need to set a blogger straight and, mind you, not even the blogger at whose blog is referenced, rather a commenter to a blogger at a blog. The post was not linked to online either, which is plain and simply dumb.
In my post that was critical of the ABH’s endorsement of Pulliam, I asked how out of touch they were. While I appreciate the coverage of Peach Pundit, I think this kind of reflects just how out of touch they are.
