Heretics?

"Maybe you haven't noticed, but the mainstream media are suffering from the perception that they're just the teeniest bit arrogant. Oh, who am I kidding? They behave like they're nobles or a priestly class. DanRather, Brian Williams and Peter Jennings might as well wear flowing ermine robes. From their palaces in midtown Manhattan they determine what the peasants see and read. They regard upstarts such as National Review, Fox News and -- shudder -- bloggers as little more than a motley collection of heretics, Anabaptists and barbarians." --Jonah Goldberg (excerpted from The Federalist) (my emphasis)

Me? I've always been a Lollard. They burned us in the 14th and 15th centuries for sedition, when all we wanted was to worship in spirit and truth. We can expect no better in the 21st century...
