ALA president-elect Michael Gorman has pulled a "Sony Barari" on his blogger piece: he claims it was satirical.
Is disdain the best way to criticize problems with the blogosphere?
Furthermore, Gorman says:
Rest assure that my views on 'blogs' have nothing to do with my activities as ALA president-elect or president. I merely air my views and believe that everyone (including me) has a right to speak in any way they wish and that others have a right to respond.
Given how others are reading this story (cf. ALA President Not Fond of Bloggers and More Tedious And Self-Serving Attacks On Bloggers), is that an excuse a president should be making?
