#JustABlogger: Citizens continue to teach Juan Williams a lesson


Facts are hard for some. A perfect example of that is Fox News contributor Juan Williams. As Twitchy reported last night, Juan Williams extolled the virtues of “real journalists” while slamming “just bloggers.” This didn’t sit well with all those who live outside of the self-aggrandizing media bubble. His remarks caused a firestorm on Twitter last night and it is carrying through this afternoon.

@TheJuanWilliams Your arrogance re: #justablogger.remarks is breathtaking. And you are so unprofessional – eye-rolling, personal attacks.

@TheJuanWilliams– Ur a COMMENTATOR. Reporter/bloggers like @michellemalkin chase stories, not just bloviate #realreporter #justablogger

#justablogger is what newspapers and networks tell you to protect their business model.

Now Twitter users are attempting to teach Mr. Williams what these “just a blogger” folks actually do.

#justablogger is what Anthony Weiner tried to tell the public to protect his job… @DLoesch #war

Remember that one, “real journalists?” We do. Andrew Breitbart was “just a blogger.” Unlike the Better Than You alleged journalists, he understood the power of citizen journalism and blogging. He also knew that there was an overwhelming need for it, due to the abysmal performance of “real journalists.” These reputed journalists just keep proving him right.


@michellemalkin Truthfully, I don't even watch "real journalism", (i.e. LSM), I get ALL my info from blogs, twitter & FB #justablogger

@michellemalkin A #realreporter is #justablogger who only blogs what someone else tells them to.

@michellemalkin @TheJuanWilliams I have gotten more true info from #justablogger over the last year than #realjournalists in the last 10

Since twitter was founded- do we even need REAL REPORTERS anymore- cause I ALWAYS hear it from TWITTER ARMY & BLOGGERS FIRST! #justablogger

Thank you to each and everyone of you who are #justablogger

We’ll take “just a blogger” over the lapdog media any day, thank you. “Just bloggers” do the jobs that the media refuse to do.
