Business Insider CEO Henry Blodget has challenged journalism professor Dan Reimhold to a blog-off against BI’s pathologically prolific writer Joe Weisenthal, according to Poynter.
It all started when Mr. Reimhold, who teaches at the University of Tampa, wrote a mild blog post about how he would never teach his students to be like Mr. Weisenthal, presumably because Mr. Reimhold doesn’t hate his students. According to a recent Times Magazine profile, Mr. Weisenthal has no personal life, poor journalistic accuracy, and some gastrointestinal issues. Instead, Mr. Reimhold urged his students to be like the late Anthony Shadid. Easier said than done, prof!
