|Quilted Northern - Toilet Paper|
Johnny Northside aka John Hoff recently went on a self-touting rant about the mainstream media "stealing" moves from his (journalism) "playbook." Somehow Hoff has it in his head that he is a known player in the world of journalism but, his resume doesn't exactly reflect the journalist that Hoff see's himself as. In fact, only the Minnesota Daily (University of MN student paper) is the only employer Hoff has worked for as a paid journalist. He has been a professors student aid but, that is hardly a position that would qualify as a journalist.
Wait! Hoff is Johnny Northside! Everyone has heard of him... Right?
The Adventures of Johnny Northside (www.johnnynorthside.com) is merely a Blog. In fact, even though it was named the "best blog" by the CityPages two years in a row, it is just a blog that very few people, even in Minneapolis has even heard of. I have said many times that John Hoff is a ruthless hack who even journalists such as Geraldo Rivera would be embarrassed to be compared to.
I submitted the following comments to Hoff's blog that were not approved, of course.
"Playbook! Haha that is kind of funny, in a delusional sort of way.Look at the journalism content of your resume. The MN Daily is the only somewhat credible thing you can claim as professional journalism to your credit. This is a blog. This blog is a loose cannon, no accountability and no ethical guidelines ever followed if I ever saw one.Wait, you were named best blog by city pages two years running. Yeah and Quilted Northern wipes more crap than any other toilet paper and more people have heard of Quilted Northern than you.Playbook? You are a self-centered hack at BEST."After I said that more people have heard of Quilted Northern than Johnny Northside and that it wipes more crap than other toilet paper, I realized that my comparison of the toilet paper to Hoff is unfair to Quilted Northern. How is it unfair TO Quilted Northern??? Here are a few examples of how Hoff doesn't come close to being as good as the toilet paper...
1) QN actually cleans crap by wiping it away while Northside likes to play in it.
2) QN is respected by the public (unlike Northside) as it provides a worthy service.
3) Everyone has heard of Quilted Northern but, few know who Johnny Northside is.
4) Once crap is wiped away, you can flush QN down the toilet but, it's nearly impossible to get rid of Johnny Northside.
5) QN wipes an ass clean while Johnny Northside is merely... An Ass Wipe.
