How Savage

Posted By on Fri, Jun 26, 2009 at 7:28 PM

Dan Savage, editor of Seattle's alt-weekly The Stranger, raised some eyebrows serving as a panelist at the AAN conference when he said—after almost 40 minutes of complete silence: "I just want to say what a bunch of fucking bullshit all this is."

The topic of discussion? Twitter and Facebook.

While his co-panelists sung the praises of social media, Savage, who blogs like a mad man on The Stranger's Slog and expects staffers to be prolific bloggers or beat feet, wasn't having it. It was a brilliant moment, albeit tense, especially since he was directly contradicting what the rest of the panel had been saying.

Don't know Savage? Here's an excerpt from yesterday's Savage Love column: "You should start sucking off strange men for money." Read him here.
