Belly up

Remember what I wrote yesterday about the mainstream media being viewed by some Christians, conservatives, and pro-lifers as the belly of the beast?

The ultra-scatological gossip site Gawker, working overtime to be blasphemous, offers a tapeworm's-eye view of the beast's bilious innards with its profanity-laden* coverage of my announcement of my new job. (See my original post for the factually accurate, acid-free version.)

*As Gawker managing editor Choire Sicha notes in the comments to this post, Gawker's actual post contains blasphemies (taking God's name ironically) but not profanities. The comments to that post do contain profanities, however, in abundance. Be forewarned.
