(More) fame at last! (And a respite for you lot from the damp squib that has been TV is Shit week) - a riposte from Rachel Cooke to Technical Monkey’s critique of her rantings against blogger-critics. Skirting neatly round the main body of TM’s rather cogent argument, she seems far more interested in whingeing about my personal insults - which is fair enough, apart from the fact that she’s misquoted me entirely. I called her a “talentless rah bint”, not a “daft blonde bint”. I have nothing at all against daft or blonde bints, just talentless rah ones. Admittedly, Ms Cooke is also at pains to point out that she isn’t posh - so just talentless, then.
For a more serious reply to her continued publicity-seeking anti-blog guff, check The Bibliosphere, or hang around here for TM’s own response, which will surely follow in the next 24 hours or so.
