I wonder what kind of conversations folks have when they aren't screaming at each other on the web or elsewhere?
Reading lots of comments on my last post, I guess my point got made: the culture and discourse of the Internet is not what you would teach kids at the dinner table -- unless you kept a bar of soap handy.Klein:
The Stephanopoulos moment came and went ephemerally, as TV moments do, leaving a slight, queasy residue Ã¢â‚¬â€ I knew that I hadn't explained myself adequately, but that happens a lot on television. So thanks, frothing bloggers, for calling me on my mistake. You can, at times, be a valuable corrective.
At other times, though, your vitriol just seems uninformed, malicious and disproportionate. You seem to believe that since I'm not a lock-step liberal Ã¢â‚¬â€ and we can talk about what a liberal actually is some other time Ã¢â‚¬â€ I'm some sort of creepy, covert conservative.Chris Bowers over at MyDD takes a look at these couple of posts and finds an emerging anti-netroots narrative that casts Beltway insiders as "the adults" and the netroots as unruly teenagers--young, rabid, inexperienced, arrogant, uninformed.
