I’ve just realised why the comments last night ascribing one monolithic mindset to the traditional media annoyed me so much:

His commenters show the typically depressing blogger mindset of
treating us journalists like a monolithic social block that all behave
the same way. Yet if any journalist should dare to describe bloggers in
the same way, all hell breaks loose…

That was me, over four years ago. Can’t we move on from this issue yet?
