We’ll grant you, it does no good: Right from the start, for many years, we’ve warned you about Maureen Dowd.
Make no mistake! Dowd has been very influential over the past twenty years. Back in 1992, Katherine Boo warned the world about the insipid trend she described as “Creeping Dowdism.”
Boo’s detailed warning was ignored. The simpering dumbness Boo denounced has very much taken hold in the mainstream press. This has been a disaster for modern pseudo-journalism.
We’ve endlessly warned you about this matter. We’ll grant you, it does no good.
Public editor Clark Hoyt crushed Dowd in June 2008, but no one in the career press corps is willing to challenge the inanity her work represents and encourages. Last night, on CNN, a progressive pundit proved that point. See our previous post.
We’re the first to admit that it does no good. But we’ve been right on this matter too!
