Babs Discovers Editors

Barbara Streisand discovers why we bloggers mistrust the Exempt Media and write for ourselves. She's miffed because she wrote a letter to the Los Angeles Times and they had the audacity to edit her letter when they published it. Babs presents the letter as written on her website, and then reproduces the resulting publication. I won't excerpt it here; you should read it for yourself.

I have to admit that she has a point about the hack editing job done on her letter. Unfortunately, she wrote a hack letter in support of a hack columnist (Robert Scheer) who should have been terminated years ago. Be that as it may, the resulting edit removed the key point of her letter -- that she felt strongly enough about the Chicagoization of the LA Times that she had canceled her subscription. It shows that people on both the right and the left have come to a similar conclusion about the cluelessness of Tribune management of the LA paper, and apparently that charge hits a little too close to home to get published in the Letters section of the Times.

Now, after complaining about editorless bloggers, Babs finally gets to experience the frustration that launched a million blogs. Now if she would only discover permalinks, she'd be all set. (via The Corner and an amused Jonah Goldberg)
