In response to Andrew Marr's comments about bloggers:
"Most citizen journalism strikes me as nothing to do with journalism at all. A lot of bloggers seem to be socially inadequate, pimpled, single, slightly seedy, bald, cauliflower-nosed, young men sitting in their mother's basements and ranting. They are very angry people. OK – the country is full of very angry people. Many of us are angry people at times. Some of us are angry and drunk. But the so-called citizen journalism is the spewings and rantings of very drunk people late at night."
"Some BBC journalism strikes me as nothing to do with journalism at all. A lot of Andrew Marr seems to be a socially inadequate, big eared, slightly seedy, middle aged man sitting in a studio pontificating. He is a very angry person, especially if it comes to threatening legal action to protect his privacy. OK – the country is full of very private people. Many of us are private people at times. Some of us are private and and don't want people to know about aspects of our private life but are quite happy to bully Gordon Brown with questions about prescription drugs. But this so-called BBC journalism is the spewings and rantings of very hypocritical person on a Sunday morning."
