Its a pity that an article that attempts to be an defense of "Big Journalism" and an attack on those snaky upstarts would fail to get one of its attacks about the snarky upstart wrong in precisely the way that just encourages the snarky upstarts.
The offending portion:
Last week, one fashionable Minnesota blogger -- a bank vice president who is getting a lot of ink and TV time lately -- posted a scurrilous piece about U.S. Sen. Mark Dayton, calling him, "Minnesota's contribution to the psychiatric profession."
This clearly refers to this post which was indeed written by "The Big trunk" AKA Scott W. Johnson who is an attorney and senior vice president of TCF National Bank in Minneapolis. Unfortunately the post was written in ah MAY 2004 which is not "last week" for most commonly held definitions of last week.
