FJOTD: Borat Sagdiyev!

Though a respected journalist in his native country, Borat was no stranger to occasionally handing crap in on deadline.

Jak sie masz? His name-a Borat. He like you. He like sex. Is nice! Wawawee…OK, wait! I’m sorry, come back! I’ll stop now. So, as you can tell by my impeccable impersonation (and that of a million drunk undergrads for the past two years), today’s Fictional Journalist of the Day is none other than international relations expert hailing from Kazakhstan, Mr. Borat Saga…Sadgee…BORAT! HURRAY!

We know what you’re thinking. Why did we choose another played out Halloween costume for the FJOTD? Well, dear readers, for the simple purpose of filling our archives. We figured if we can get these characters our of the way, we can open up the path to more um… rewarding characters like always bright and shiny April O’Neil, or someone like a Kent Brockman. (No links yet! They have to wait their turn!)

In any case, Borat is not without his merits. If you ever wanted to talk about a journalist putting it all on the line for something he was passionate about, look no further than this documentary that basically made him a household name.

But before the accolades, here’s a nice investigation piece on America’s gun control policies.

Now… onto the links:

Who loves lists? Bloggers do. What do bloggers love more than lists? A lists about bloggers. Here’s the 25 most valuable blogs according to 24/7 Wall St. Guess who tops the list. (24/7 Wall St.)

And as a bonus (no one loves bonuses more than Wall Street), here’s one blog’s take. (Professional Blogging News)

A good point on monetizing social media and Web 2.0 applications, which kind of supports the argument that all these corporate big wigs talking about adoping “the Web 2.0” maybe don’t really understand what it’s about. (Make the Logo Bigger)
