"There are mad bloggers who profess to take delight in my distress, but there's no need to pay them attention in the face of such an outpouring of goodwill for me," Novak wrote. "I had thought 51 years of rough-and-tumble journalism in Washington made me more enemies than friends, but my recent experience suggests the opposite may be the case."No blogger of any notoriety has been showing any "delight" over Novak's condition. Please.
Yes, I'm sure there is some lowly blogger somewhere that thinks it's dandy the man is suffering from a brain tumor, but no one that would have any readers or impact on the public discourse. I suspect that if you comb through the comments of blogs you could also find a tiny number of anonymous hateful items, but that's not the work of a "mad blogger". Those people aren't even worth talking about unless you're seeking sympathy.
Maybe someday unnamed "bloggers" will not be the go-to whipping boys for those who feel persecuted. Mr. Novak, you had no problem outing a CIA agent, surely you can tell us who the mad bloggers are.
