Really Forbes is just allowing anyone make comments now a days. First, a Forbes article was titled “Your Favorite Bloggers are Literally Crazy (And That’s Why They’re Popular)” was written by Ryan Holiday. Coincidentally, Holiday has recently published a book called “Trust Me, I’m Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator.” Amazon’s description makes Ryan Holiday sound like quite an arrogant blog hater.
“I’m a media manipulator. In a world where blogs control and distort the news, my job is to control blogs—as much as any one person can.
In today’s culture…
1) Blogs like Gawker, Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post drive the media agenda.
2) Bloggers are slaves to money, technology, and deadlines.
3) Manipulators wield these levers to shape everything you read, see and watch—online and off.
Why am I giving away these secrets? Because I’m tired of a world where blogs take indirect bribes, marketers help write the news, reckless journalists spread lies, and no one is accountable for any of it. I’m pulling back the curtain because I don’t want anyone else to get blindsided.”
Boy stop. Crazy? Maybe a little. How dare Forbes post a demeaning article then retract it? At least m
Then a Forbes’ reporter felt the need to tell you how you to blow through millions on the east coast. I knew it was a mess when she started off saying “We’re here in Montauk, one of the most affluent zip codes on the East Coast. Now you may think it’s easy to spend your money here but it’s actually not that easy.” Um that state didn’t make sense darling. I checked property prices and a piece of grass costs a million. It is very low key and casual but you are driving a $340,000 automobile. Forbes need to rely on bloggers because we are “crazy” and more than likely will tell you the truth.
