I saw this year that the Qantas Media Awards 2010 had supposedly amped up the blog section to breaking news stories and blogs of actual newsworthy relevance. Last year the fat Maori librarian won over the generation z idiot who is already in 50k of debt. Real blog worthies NOT!
But I’ve just read that the 3 finalists this year for Best Blog are 2 parenting blogs from Fairfucks and the NZ Herald and a computer geek who barely strings a sentence together. The computer geek even posts about his finalist place as though it was a fucking surprise. Since it is self entering, ie you fill the entry form out yourself, it shouldn’t be any surprise that he was selected.Plus he onmly blogs about once a week,m even Russell Brown can manage more than that 1 week in four, especially when Lamb Chops are on special.
Neither I nor any real blogger could be arsed filling out the entry form. Plus the entry form required your editor to sign it off. HELLO! We are bloggers you MSM fuck-heads, editors are scum who cramp your style. To me filling out a form nominating yourself smacked of bending over and blowing smoke up your own arse while giving yourself a reach around.
The Qantas Media Awards are nothing but self-serving of the MSM protecting their own by terming a journo writing garbage online, a blog. In fact the NZ Herald doesn’t even do that. They dropped the blog titles from their website months ago. So technically the whiny tart blogging about sick, crap and wet nappies isn’t even a blogger let alone a blo-jo.
The irony, that I am sure has completely escaped, the judges, the MSM repeaters and their editorial nursemaids/botty-wipers is that NONE of those nominated even gets close to being in the top 50 bloggers that matter in this country. Hell, according to that smack-bummed face Deborah Coddington not even I am influential, so where does that place these three?
Good grief, how credible can these awards be when under the Newspaper of the Year (over 30,000 circulation) finalists are listed as The Waikato Times, The Press, The New Zealand Herald. Well fuck me both The manatee and I have more circulation than them.
I contend that my Media Rating System is far more accurate than these awards. Boy I can’t wait for the full page ads and the self-congratulatory 60 second puff pieces about how faaaabulous then repeaters are in winning awards they entered themselves in.
