The real “vanity press” goes by the name “main stream media.”

March 18th, 2006

A gentleman from the main stream media had the courage to stand up at the Wispolitics Blog Summit and mention how he had a hard time getting his staffers to take blogs seriously.

He said that around the office they think blogging is nothing more than a new version of the vanity press.

But who is more vain?

People who believe they have something to say and our willing to spend their own time and money to say it?

Or the high priests of publishing that think that owning the presses makes them better qualified to decide who deserves to have a voice and who does not?
