HOW TO DISAPPEAR COMPLETELY*:

Step 1: Name webheads the "people of the year."

Step 2: Refer to insane antisemite as "champion of the dispossessed" and "global Everyman" in same "people of the year" section of the online version of your magazine.

Step 3: Get called out by webheads.

Step 4: Remove said references.

Step 5: Give no explanation for removal, hoping nobody will notice, proving that you still have no idea how this whole newfangled intertube thing works.

A twelve-year-old who's blogged for two days knows that if you're gonna alter something you wrote, you'd better explain why. But venerable Time magazine hasn't quite got the hang of it yet. Pathetic.

And of course Ye Olde Mediae (YOM) hates being caught by those meddling kids on the web, people of the year or not. Which is why they love to focus attention on things like YouTube and Myspace - "Hey, look at the shiny videos! Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!"

Did I already call them pathetic?
