This Isn’t Journalism; Slate and TechCrunch Should be Embarrassed

Recently Slate wrote a story about how Rudy Giuliani’s daughter had listed on her Facebook profile that she had supported Barack Obama for President.  Michael Arrington also covered the story on his Web site TechCrunch.

Does anyone else find it slightly disturbing that two well respected online publications would think it important enough to report this story?   Who gives a rats ass  what Rudy Giuliani’s daugther has on her Facebook page.  She’s 18 years old.

This is just cheesy American tabloid style journalism which I think is beneath Slate and TechCrunch.  You publish this story not because you think its important but because you want to score a quick shot at Rudy Giuliani.
