The Internet Thinks Greta Van Susteren Is Dumb

from Today's Papers/slate.com

 
Greta Van Susteren, a staple on Fox News, received an e-mail from Brian, an otherwise anonymous viewer from Tehlequah, Oklahoma, who wrote in to tell her how dumb she was. "You have a mind like a seive [sic]. Your brain is empty," Brian wrote. "Matter of fact, it is so empty, if you put a pea in your skull it would rattle around like a BB in a boxcar."
 
Van Susteren, without hesitation, turned to her blog on Fox, the Greta Wire, where she posted a poll that asked readers to vote. "Who is dumber?" the poll asked. The options: "Greta?" or "Brian for spending his time watching someone he thinks is dumb."
 
By the time Gawker got around to writing about the poll, Greta, with more than 5,500 votes, had been voted dumber than Brian by her own readers.
 
"What Greta seems to have forgotten is that while the Internet is a great place to air grievances, it is not a great place to find personal validation," Gawker wrote. "In fact, it is the actual worst  place to find personal validation. Especially in poll form."
