SeattlePI.com Sinks to New Low - Gives Blogger Lead Story
I love the comments this guy gets. And I love how ugly and useless the Seattle Post-Intelligencer has become. Only a year ago I was getting it at my doorstep every morning. And they paid their writers.
Hey Mr. Blandsten! This is David Nelson with the Seattle PI's Inside Belltown. Hey, I saw your funny blog about my story being on the front page of the the PI's website and I appreciate your coverage. It was a great week for me due to that blog; I had over 10k visits to the page and was on the front page of two different websites, the PI's and yours.
Again, thanks for reading all my blogs and writing about me.
Hard to believe how far the Seattle Post-Intelligencer has sunk since it stopped printing on newsprint and became a "blog." Today a terrible piece by an unpaid blogger ("P-I Reader Blogs are not written or edited by the P-I. They are written by readers, for readers.") who can't write was the lead story at SeattlePI.com for a time.
On the PI's main page we see the lead - an amateurish photocollage that advertises "10 ANNOYING things that people do in Belltown." This link takes us to a blog post by David Nelson with a different headline: "10 annoying things Belltowners do."
Mr. Nelson? If you want to be an unpaid blogger for the new and unimproved SeattlePI.com and you cross the annoyance threshold be prepared to be called out on your lack of skills as a journalist. In my opinion you have nothing to contribute to the blogosphere - your drivel lacks soul, a sense of honesty and any sort of political consciousness.
I'll keep updating this page if the SeattlePI.com's Inside Belltown blog keeps offending me ...
