BEEF: Bloggers vs. Journalists

I’d hate to be the one to break this to you folks, but there is an underground war being raged between some of those supposed “professional” journalists and all of us bloggers.

But, whatever the reason, the beef exists – at least from the other side.

The battle between the print world and the online psuedo-journalistic world came to a head this weekwhen Will Leitch, creator of Deadspin.com, and the guy who wrote Friday Night Lights, who will remain nameless for being such a raging A-hole, battled it out on Costas Now.
