The tension of blogging

A sportswriter I like on Twitter wrote recently about Bill Simmons who wrote recently about the scourge of the middle-aged white man’s anger over Marshawn Lynch.

This accurately sums up the tension between reporters and bloggers and I still have no idea what to do about it.

“However, if it weren’t for the foot soldiers who cover these guys face-to-face, how much more poorly informed would Simmons be about them? It’s like the guy who hates seeing undocumented workers waiting in the Target parking lot but loves the price of his fruit.”
