The BBC's former political editor, Andrew Marr, fired a broadside at the online community and insisted it won't replace journalism. What do you think?One man won't be welcome on the internet again is the broadcaster Andrew Marr, who has dismissed bloggers as "socially inadequate, pimpled, single, slightly seedy, bald, cauliflower-nosed young men sitting in their mother's basements."
While I think there is a certain truth to his comment on social inadequacy driving people behind the keyboard rather than down to the pub, I can't say I have any opinion about whether political blogs such as P.ie attract "pimpled, single, slightly seedy, bald, cauliflower-nosed young men" - are you such a person? (I am not)
