Why Journalists are not trusted these days.

Glenn Reynolds tell the tale.

I just noticed one formerly friendly journalist dissing me in the comments on a lefty blog, and when I checked my email I noticed that the friendly messages stopped right after I plugged his book.

You know if you treat people with respect you will earn respect, if you act like a weasel don’t expect people to remember you as anything but weaselly.

Glenn shows the class that the person he refers to doesn’t by not naming him. I suspect any subsequent book however won’t get a plug. Nothing like burning bridges is there?

Update: A lesson for the journalist in question: Instead of abandoning someone who does me a favor I sent a thank you note for the promotion of my attempt to make a living at this and got a very friendly reply…and ANOTHER Instalanche.

People are not a commodity to be used and discarded. They are our friends and brothers to be treasured and respected.
