After a long weekend, I decided I needed a comedy pick-me-up, and therefore headed straight over to see what kind of drivel Bill Plaschke was writing about today. As expected, it’s yet another diatribe about how Bill’s got the vapors that no one’s as horrified over what Manny did as he is. In fact, Bill couldn’t find a single person at the Inland Empire park who would agree with him. Which means, I don’t know, that maybe Bill’s completely out of touch with the public?
But that’s not news; we’ve all known that for quite some time. No, here’s what really caught my eye: the fact that Bill Plaschke drove out to Riverside County to watch Manny play for the 66ers. Because, if you didn’t know, Bill’s got a Twitter page, and this is exactly what he said just 4 days ago:
Yet here you are, just a few short days later, doing just that. It’s even better when you see his next post right on top of this one (Twitter posts are listed chronologically, newest at the top):
Such a short ride from “I refuse to go!” to “okay, I’ll go, but only to make fun of him and try to create a story that doesn’t exist”, isn’t it, Bill? If only the distance between “journalism” and whatever exactly it is you do was that short.
