One Damn Thing After Another

Wonkette's publisher in the New York Times:
The rules of the blogosphere demand displaying corrections quickly and prominently, said Mr. Denton (and sarcastically, in Ms. Cox's case), but he has no hesitation about running an item with paper-thin sourcing. "I think it's implicit in the way that a Web site is produced that our standards of accuracy are lower," he said. "Besides, immediacy is more important than accuracy, and humor is more important than accuracy."
Denton is a very smart guy and I think he understands that in a media world in which The Apprentice is taken as an acccurate portraryal of business, Wonkette will be way more interesting than Bob Woodward's latest book. Which likely means we are all going straight to Hell. But in the most entertaining way.
