While going through Ben Smith’s law blogger roundup of THAT WOMAN vs. Gawker (short version: Gawker is kind of hosed*) I came across this bit of misdirected exasperation on William McGeveran’s part:
…if you are sick of hearing Sarah Palin decry the arrogance of the media that covers her, then you’d rather deny her the satisfaction of being right.
I think that it’s just the tiniest bit uncouth to be blaming the victim for this, Mr. McGeveran? Blame Gawker, blame the abusers of fair use, heck, blame the media/liberal/Democratic crusade if you like. But I don’t see exactly what THAT WOMAN did wrong here.
Besides exist, of course.
*They probably didn’t help matters much by taunting THAT WOMAN with links to… sites that proved her point, actually.
