It took media reporter
Roger Robert Feder about a week of being back on the beat to take a swipe
at ChicagoNow, whose offerings he derides as a "menagerie of free-lancers and hobbyists." My reaction? Finally. You know you've arrived when an old newspaper guy like Feder comes after you. And it's especially delicious that Feder does so perched at Vocalo.org, which (a) relies on a menagerie of freelancers and hobbyists and (b) makes ChicagoNow look like something of a media giant. I'm friends and colleagues with several people at Vocalo and WBEZ. I generally admire what they do. I get what Feder is talking about. I just think that maybe he should look around his new surroundings before he gets all high and mighty. It's a new world out there, Robert, and you're in it.
