Andrew Marr says bloggers are 'inadequate, pimpled and single'

BBC Presenter Andrew Marr, has dismissed bloggers as "inadequate, pimpled and single", and citizen journalism as the "spewings and rantings of very drunk people late at night". Marr, the BBC's former political editor who now presents BBC1's flagship Sunday morning show, said: "Most citizen journalism strikes me as nothing to do with journalism at all.

"A lot of bloggers seem to be socially inadequate, pimpled, single, slightly seedy, bald, cauliflower-nosed young men sitting in their mother's basements and ranting. They are very angry people," He added: "Most of the blogging is too angry and too abusive. Terrible things are said online because they are anonymous. People say things online that they wouldn't dream of saying in person."

Marr has obviously not read any beauty blogs! What's your opinion?


  1. i don't think someone with marr's...looks? haha should judge other peoples appearances as 'pimpled' and therefore 'single.'
    what a douche xx

  2. Oh that's rich, coming from the man who doesn't wash his hair. =/


  3. What a douche. I bet he's read about 3 blogs in his entire life.

  4. wow, somebody needs a shlaaap! x

  5. To be fair, there are a few bloggers (definitely not beauty bloggers) that do fit into that stereotype! But, it's definitely unfair to make such a general sweeping statement about all bloggers, I like to think we're a very diverse bunch! :D

  6. He's just feeling threatened by the bloggers I think. It's a shame, as I thought he was alright before today! x

  7. Hehe He looks like a cauliflower himself! And angry... Is he a blogger?

    I have never read angry and abusive blogs...I have better things to do! Blogs I read are either about makeup, books or personal finances, which I find helpful to me!

  8. Marr's comments reflect a fear not only of new technologies, but also of the erosion of privileges they encourage:

  9. I've never heard of him, but I disagree with him! We're not talking about youtube hate mister!! We're talking about blogging! Most beauty blogs I follow aren't like that at all !


Thank you for Commenting!
