Get used to it

Sunday Times columnist Rod Liddle on the tendency of newspaper websites to be filled with vitriol against the media elite:

There’s a genuine and justifiable annoyance at the sheer whining narcissism of columnists, including me. Some readers always thought we were a pack of self-obsessed wankers. Now they have both the confidence and the platform to tell us what they think. And seeing their words ‘published’ on the internet, next to lots of other comments, seems to legitimise what they say and spur them on.
