Somehow I got out of the habit of watching “The Simpsons.” (Oh wait, I remember. I have kids. And Heather hates it, almost as much as “The Three Stooges.” God, they were great.) So I missed this reference to blogging in a recent episode:
Homer: See Lisa, instead of one big-shot controlling all the media, now there’s a thousand freaks xeroxing their worthless opinions.
Lisa: I couldn’t be prouder.
Cut to Mr. Burns and Smiths standing at the window overlooking Springfield.
Mr. Burns: (stares into “camera”) Well, I suppose it isn’t possible to control all the media… unless, of course, you are Rupert Murdoch. [beat] He is one beautiful man.
Smithers: (stares into “camera”) I couldn’t agree more.
