Robert Fisk lives in the past:

QUESTIONER: Gary Rosen from Commentary magazine. Mr. Fisk, you’ve achieved a degree of immortality in the blogosphere, where these online commentators [use] the verb “to fisk” [meaning] to take a piece of journalism and to respond to it point-by-point for its ideological biases and factual unreliability. I’m wondering, do you — do you take pride in this coinage? Does it fill you with indignation? What are your thoughts on it? Is it justified?

FISK: I don’t waste my time with blogs, I don’t use the Internet, and I don’t use e-mail. I work.
