"Time for Robert Novak to Feel Some Chill"

"Time for Robert Novak to Feel Some Chill"

Hey, I missed this from Jay Rosen a coupla weeks ago.

I, for one, have had it with Robert Novak. And if all the journalists who are talking today about “chilling effects” and individual conscience mean what they say, they will, as a matter of conscience and pride, start giving Novak himself the big chill.

That means if you’re a Washington columnist maybe you don’t go on CNN with him— until he explains. If you’re a newspaper editor you consider suspending his column until he explains. If you’re Jonathan Klein, president of CNN/US, you take him off the air until he decides to go on the air and explain. If you’re John Barron, editor of the Chicago Sun-Times, you suspend your columnist (with pay, I should think); and if Barron won’t do it then publisher John Cruickshank should.

Jay's one of the leading proponents of "citizen journalism", a big deal.

For those of you not familiar with Novak's work, he's best reported by The Daily Show as "the douchebag of liberty."
