Bill Keller, Put Out to Pasture, Tilts Endlessly at Windmills

Cranky Old Man Who Really Has No Original or Insightful Ideas About The Internet or Media in General But Thinks He Does Because He Lived in a High-Powered Bubble For Many Years as NYT Editor and Now Nobody Will Tell Him That His Columns Are All Tedious and Pedestrian Bill Keller has written a snide response to all the snide tweets about the snide response to his last snide column about the internet that was itself not particularly new or interesting.

Hey Bill, try just shutting the fuck up and letting your work stand on its own once in a while. Otherwise you come off as just another angry old crank caught up in the endless cycle of argument on the internet, of which there are many already. Which makes it unbearably hard to remember to respect your ample journalistic accomplishments of the past.

This has been a free tip.
