Mike Campbell calls it the Bloggish Enlightenment. Thinking along similar lines, BuzzMachine makes an apt comparison (via InstaPundit).
The priests are nervous, eh? The people are outside the cathedral tacking up their 95 theses and the priests are sticking their fingers in their ears, trying to ignore them, telling each other that those guys outside aren't blessed with the right to perform the sacraments of the church. They think they own "ethics, laws, fairness etc." Hell, they think they own the truth. But, of course, they don't. And what the priests don't see is that the reason the rabble is organizing outside is that they are fed up with the priests and their indulgences and their failures.
Welcome to the First Reformed Church of Journalism, professor.

Did anyone else read Jack Kapica's patronizing piece on blogging in the G&M yesterday?
I commented here.
These guys just don't get it.
