Blogging is stupid, because Jared Leto says so

Blogging is stupid, because Jared Leto says so
Via: Stereogum
Somewhat talented actor/absolutely talentless frontman for 30 Seconds to Mars Jared Leto had some downright mean things to say about blogs in a recent interview with G4TV. Here's a transcript of the highlights:
"I think that blogging should die a sudden death. It's just ridiculous. It's like a playground for four-year-olds. People say and do things in the world of blogs that they would never do in real life, and I think it's a false experience. You know, it's, like, eating too much candy. One of the things along those lines that bothers me about when people start citing blogs as news sources is that when people are writing on these blogs, they feel like they don't feel they need to do any research or back up their opinions with facts or anything, you know what I mean? Times have changed. It used to be, to be a writer you had to have experience and talent, and learn a craft. Now anybody with an opinion, which is anyone and everyone, feels that it's worthy. Technology is allowing people to have access to things where before it required very great skill. So there will be some interesting developments from that, and also some things that are pretty worthless. Pretty soon anybody with a cell phone is going to be able to be a news reporter. The blog is yesterday's parachute pants. It's here now but it's gone tomorrow."
Ouch! Okay, Leto, I'll play it your way. After doing some reserach (watching your interview), I now have some facts to back up my opinion that you're a complete tool. Oh, and here's another opinion I have that your bands' mere existence lends fact to: Fame is allowing people to have access to things where before it required very great skill.
After the jump, some photographic evidence that Leto knows all about that whole "eating too much candy" thing.

WTF

he does kinda have a point. but i do think people tend to disregard, or at least not often return to the blogs that are totally baseless ramblings for the most part.

I agree with Jared Leto 100%....blogging is hella stupid.

This quote is great:
"Times have changed. It used to be, to be a writer you had to have experience and talent, and learn a craft."

Not everyone should be able to publish on the web. It takes talent, research, credibility, dedication, education, and experience to be a good writer. The internet allows one to express themselves independently, it's also a breeding ground for idiocy and mob mentality.
