Coming Monday, August 29: The new, improved IHateTheMedia.com 2.0

by editor on August 22, 2011

We’ve been banging out this ravenous monster known as IHateTheMedia.com for two and a half years now. We got so excited about hitting 10,000,000 page views that we went off our meds and now our Attention Deficit Disorder is out of control.

We decided it’s time to shake things up, to try something different, to do the unexpected.

So next Monday, August 29 we will introduce IHateTheMedia.com 2.0. More stories. More snark. More focus. Quicker. Shorter. More stuff, less fluff.

We’re going dark this Saturday and Sunday (August 27 and 28) to work out all the bugs and then we’ll go live again on Monday morning.

Everything else will be the same. The same sense of community we’ve built up with our readers. The same trolls. The same semi-amusing commentary (on a good day). The same twisted outlook on the day’s events.

We think you’ll like it. Well, we hope like hell you like it.

RHG: “I think that thank you should come from all of us.”

Very nice of you, but totally unnecessary.

I’m having a pretty good year, so I thought to “spread the wealth around” to some peeps who have EARNED recognition for their (half-assed} effort to create something new, rather than waiting around for some entitlement funds for out of work web designers, programmers and starving editorialists. Which, judging by their work here, they both should be.

I may have just thrown my money down a well, but it is a wishing well for the success of people who are trying, rather than throwing my money down the black hole of further government intervention into “creating” jobs.

Don’t thank me, thank Ed and Admin for creating a place where all the rest of us frustrated editorialists can get together to exchange little knick-knacks of knowledge and THWACK on a troll at our leisure.

All seriousness, this site to me is what being an American is all about. To talk, to argue, to create and to grow together as a community. To that end, I wish the boys (and girls) backstage all the best luck in the world, and I simply put my money where my mouth is.

I do appreciate the work that goes into making this site what it is, and give many thanks and kudos to Mr. Ad and Mr. Ed. It can’t be easy sifting through all the liberal crap they have to look at to bring us our daily load of leftist nonsense. For that, they deserve a big thank you.

Gushing Ed: “It’s gratifying to know that our efforts are appreciated enough to inspire your generosity.”

If I don’t get that tingle, we’re going to have a problem.

All kidding aside, your work and generosity to host this barn are exemplary.

Back to the grind, Smut Merchant.

Sounds too good to be true.

I hereby pledge $100.00 toward server costs if the new Board sends a “tingle” up my leg. That would be the closest I’ve been to sex in quite some time.

Oblivia may lose money. Soros won’t pay unless she posts stupid stuff here.

Please don’t pull a “Facebook” and go overboard with the superfluous shite.

Two days dark? Oh dear. I might have to, like, get a life for two whole days?!

RockingHorseGuy

But what will Dear Sweet Olivia do for two whole days? Her family is going to lose their minds, since she’ll have to babble her nonsense to them the whole time.

LOL! I know right! I will have to like DO something maybe be OUTSIDE! It is all good I think it is good to make changes from time to time so I look forward to it Mr. Admin and Mr. Editor.

May I suggest drinking a good scotch in vast quantities? It makes time go very quickly, and even conversations with the most boorish become quite entertaining. Trust me, it has saved me many times. I call it “liquid cartoons.”

Or, for those of us that don’t like the taste of iodine, bourbon or rum. 😉

Ok, I’ll sprinkle a bit of Meyer’s Dark over a glass of coke. Just this one time.

poppajoe49

By sprinkle, do you mean a double shot? 😀

RockingHorseGuy

No, I mean sprinkle. I’m not much of a drinker.

MGAP

Maybe an open forum? Please?

MGAP

You know, so we can discuss off topic subjects. You could probably even have whole separate section tilted, ” Oblivia, you hapless twit, how I love thee. ” We gots a lot to say, so loosen the reins and let us run baby!!!!

Let me agree with MGAP that sometimes an open thread would be nice.

If you’re going to weave all the loose threads together, I suggest it be called the “Open Noose.” A place to hang yourself with your own opinions.

If the above is the caliber of posts you get, I don’t think your hopes are likely to be realized. 😉

Sidekick

This is why no-one likes you. You are a humorless troll.

Kyle

It’s not exactly the calibre of speeches we want, either, yet we get them delivered in what seems to be unlimited quantities.

“More stories”

good deal

“More snark”

Hard to imagine. I’m looking forward to that one.

“More focus. Quicker. Shorter.”

What are we, ADD cases?

“More stuff, less fluff.”

Hey now, you guys have some pretty good fluff here too.
