AutoPundit Flap Grows
THE BLOG BUSINESS IS GOOD. It begins to appear that the new blog elite may be just as humorless and self-important as the MSM stars they are seeking to replace. The erstwhile affable Glenn Reynolds refused to acknowledge the arrival of AutoPundit except for one cryptic and linkless(!) entry about someone impersonating him. Of course, this may relate to something altogether different, but if it does, then InstaPundit seems to be ducking the issue.
The good news is that stonewalling doesn't work in the blogosphere. Today's Drudge Report is all over the story. And in our humble opinion, the highest profile bloggers are dreaming if they think they're immune to a bit of fun at their expense. Something tells us Glenn Reynolds isn't the only blog star who's going to pay this very small price of celebrity. Stay tuned.
