Ed Levine, at Serious Eats, and Hamilton Nolan, at Gawker, do a decent job of busting up Christopher Kimball's notion that Gourmet = Kenny, and The Internet = you bastards. I will add only that the Cod is surprised that another struggling print organization would donate space to the owner of Cook's Illustrated for what amounts to an advertorial for his magazine. I will call out one favorite:
The notion that users of the Internet, in 2009, are incapable of evaluating content is like suggesting that magazine readers will pluck Cook's or Outlaw Biker off the newsstand indiscriminately. For the record, here's the first hit for broccoli casserole. It looks nasty. (I'm pretty sure that broccoli casserole is inherently nasty, but I digress.) But it's hard to imagine that anyone would cook by using the first Google result, even if they were a pervert who wanted to make broccoli casserole.
