Morning Line

When everyone sits around and says "print journalism can’t adapt" and "print journalism is dying," Kevin Paul Dupont should be hoisted as a shining example of why: he offers no unique insight, no unique analysis, and has no desire to serve readers with interesting content. He leeches readership from the Globe, leans on its name for reputation, and wouldn't survive in an environment where his content has to stand on its own merit. It’s easy to see why Kevin Paul Dupont tries so hard to undercut online writers: he doesn't try hard at his real job.

There’ll be a day when guys like Dupont wake up.

There’s a ton of crap to wade through in Blog Land, but there are plenty of shining examples of online writers who put out far more compelling content at a rate the big writers couldn’t dream of producing. Puck Daddy and Backhand Shelf anchor the lot, with plenty of other great, small-time guys like In Lou We Trust who will hopefully get their due for the work they put in.

I don’t know where hockey writing will go in the future, but it starts today with bloggers.

A. It is right there, how could you miss it.
