Blogs are mental viruses?

In an unsigned article in Expressen, the signature “Ankan” (the duck) takes pole vault athlete Patrik Kristiansson in defense after overhearing some political editor gloating over his misfortunes. Couldn’t agree more, but why blame this act of schadenfreude on blogs? The journalist writes “Reality shows and blogs are mental viruses that are morally corrupting the brains of Sweden’s intellectual elite.”

“Nej, det är dokusåporna och bloggarna som är de mentala virus som håller på att moraliskt fördärva landets intellektuella elit. De är alla smittade, deras hjärnor blir allt ruttnare, deras samveten är bara svagt tynande lågor.”

Perhaps it’s a joke, but I don’t get it. It’s a bit ridiculous to come from a tabloid that has made it into an art form to exploit reality shows.
