Stein Twitters Out a Column

Filed under: Dog Trainer — Patterico @ 1:28 am

Joel Stein:

I’ve had thoughts that weren’t complete enough for a column and ended up as my Facebook status.

Yeah, well. You’ve had thoughts that weren’t complete enough for a column and ended up as a column.

  2. Pat, you bring the funny!

    Stein’s work is a metaphor for the L.A. Times; pointless filler, talking to what he thinks is the ‘back of the room’. It does give me perverse satisfaction that he is turning into the Gen Y Al Martinez.

  3. Joel Stein has had brain synapses that weren’t complete enough for thoughts that ended up as columns.

  4. More spin against bloggers.

  5. I remember reading Joel Stein when he was writing short side-bars for Time (or was it Newsweek). He couldn’t write then. I can’t believe anyone is still employing him.

  6. I have a big problem with the claim that he actually has thoughts.
