Please Be Dignified, Reporters!

The bloggers have thrown down now. They are demanding that fancy news reporters start acting as such, not acting like les blogeurs. This is frightening. Says Wonkette: "YOU DO NOT 'PARODY' THE NEWS IN THE PROCESS OF REPORTING THE NEWS. You people are supposed to be covering things, writing articles about those things, doing research, conducting interviews, filing your articles, and then going home to cry, the end." And then it gets ugly and shouty.
