Everytime I go to New Orleans to blog…the first time…the second time…this recent third time…I am dogged by the thought that I’m forgeting something. Thanks to Brian Williams I finally remembered it’s my freaking bathrobe!
“You’re going to be up against people who have an opinion, a modem, and
a bathrobe. All of my life, developing credentials to cover my field of
work, and now I’m up against a guy named Vinny in an efficiency
apartment in the Bronx who hasn’t left the efficiency apartment in two
years” —Brian Williams, anchor of the “NBC Nightly News,” speaking
before New York University journalism students on the challenges
traditional journalism faces from online media.
UPDATE: Just checked. I don’t own a bathrobe.
