Or at least that’s what I took away from the NYT’s piece on the evolving relationship between gossip blogs and gossip columnists.

Since you can’t fill 40 columns with “These are different formats doing different things” why not conjure up a new v. old media smackdown! In one corner, we have octogenarian gossip Liz Smith. In the other, the Blogs That Dish.

Gone are the days when FDR used to dish dirt with Walter Winchell. Sadder still is the loss of all those fabulous hats the pro-gossips used to wear.

It’s all been washed away by a tide of anti-hat, anti-old-lady bloggery. Ev – how could you be so cruel.
