From the Hockey blog Backhand Shelf:
Daniel Wagner looks at recent Tweets from Dupont which show just an unbelievable animosity towards bloggers. He notes as Dupont crosses the line from cracking jokes on bloggers to “being a jerk.”
Dupont attended a charity event that helps thousands of underprivileged kids receive Christmas presents and decided that this would be a great time to take another shot at insulting bloggers, since his first attempt fell flat. He apparently thinks that bloggers are terrible people who are incapable of charity. I’m honestly baffled at the accusation.
Included in the post are shots of Dupont’s tweets, but you can look at his current timeline and see his witty responses to people.
The incident led to a well thought out proposed letter to the Globe editor about Dupont by Sarah Connors.
KPD gave it this response:
Fit in 140 or don’t bother. RT“@sarah_connors: Here’s my response to your “match Globe Santa” tweet to me last night. Thanks.

Just the latest example of the old media dinosaurs, fearful of their own positions, trying to keep these young whippersnappers in their place.
