Paul Carr is a self-important tosser. Contrast this quote with this post by Fleet Street Fox which succinctly points out that journalists, real journalists, never allow themselves to become the story. There’s honour in the latter approach. I see no honour in the former.
The wave of public he-said-she-said dickwaving posts now appearing on Techcrunch are just sad.
