Dennis Kneale Versus Internet Bonus Round


Following up on his rant Tuesday night about the “digital dickweeds” that criticized his conclusion that “the recession is over,” CNBC’s Dennis Kneale struck back again last night at the “bloviating bloggers” who “spew vitriol” at him while “hiding behind the cowardly cloak of anonymity.” (Because apparently spewing vitriol from behind a TV screen is way more courageous than doing so from behind a monitor.) The thing is, behind it all Kneale seems like he might actually have a good point to make about the dialogue on the web, regarding the recession and also “retards.” But then he ruins it by making this a personal battle instead of an objective observation. Which is, funnily enough, something that Internet writers do all the time.
