Daily KOS shows his True Colors

This is a classic case of what happens when one begins to believe in one's own press. After FISKing the KOS last week we were prepared to give the guy a break. But upon reading the following diatribe we just couldn't resist.

TODAY he makes another interesting statement. He poo-poos on "blogger ethics", mocks missing "white" girls and confesses to self divination... all in only one paragraph and breath. Now that takes talent.

"Every time I hear talk of a blogger ethics conference, I laugh so hard my stigmata starts acting up. If we want the newsmedia to get back to reporting news -- and I mean actual, politically sensitive news, not breathless on-the-scene reports from whatever stagelit tropical scene White Girl Number 23 has disappeared from this week -- we need to surgically detach the news organizations from the conglomerates that have subsumed them."

AN OPEN LETTER TO KOS:

MY DEAREST MarKOS: For your edification, please understand that "Blogger ethics" does not mean succumbing under the control of mainstream media. It simply means that bloggers (such as yourself) should aspire to higher standards of professionalism.

THAT is something you should personally take to heart because it is for the benefit of dudes like you why there is a need for these conferences in the first place.

And BTW, why are you picking on the "white" chicks? Don't you know that disaster courts no sexual preference and is color blind?

THEN AGAIN maybe that's your problem. Instead of suffering from a Christ-complex, perhaps you misspelled again and really meant to call it a stigmatism? One can only wonder.

The FISK strongly recommends that you visit an optometrist, and the next time you watch the news remove the colored lens of your personal bias.

BUT silly me, there I go forgetting again... controversy sells and keeps those numbers up. So please forgive me if I don't hold my breath.

KOS, you have become exactly what you pretend to revile in the mainstream media so look in the mirror once in a while bud. Sigh. Need more be said? Think not.

Sincerely,

```
*In hindsight, perhaps we should have started a blog devoted entirely for the KOS' benefit? There's certainly enough material there. Food for thought.

DUDE, you are righteous! Keep it up! Bloggers are the future and that stupid worm wouldn't recogize an ethics if it bit his dick.

I think you said it all and quite eloquently.

It's about time someone put the jerk in his place.

I like to read the KOS from time to time. But I have to admit occasionally he can pull a boner, and this was no exception.

Good call FISK.
