I’m not the paranoid sort. I think that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. NASA really did put men on the moon. The CIA did not create HIV. Gulf War Syndrome is largely myth. The Council on Foreign Relations doesn’t control the world. Nor does the Illuminati, the Masons, Skull & Bones, the VFW, your local Moose Lodge, or that crazy guy at the corner of Geary and Polk who’s always muttering to himself.

That said, it’s hard for a blogger not to be at least a teensy bit paranoid this week.

I say that because this morning, I noticed a new meme in the MSM — one that gained currency just as the Jordan Affair gathered steam. The earliest reference to the meme I could find this year appeared in the relatively obscure Scotsman.com on January 12:

Bookshop worker first to be sacked over internet ‘blog’

Fastforward to the 24th of last month:

Beware if your blog is related to work

February 7:

Office memo: Blogging can get you bounced

Now February 11, the day Jordan resigned:

When blogging gets risky

Free expression can be costly when bloggers bad-mouth jobs

Monday, February 14:

Dangerous transactions

Google blogger: ‘I was terminated’

Have a blog, lose your job?

It seems as though as much effort as the MSM didn’t put into the Jordan story, it did put into dire warnings about the dangers of being a blogger.

Coincidence? I wonder…
