"Jason Whitlock has no soul," writes fellow journalist, quite correctly

I've wasted quite a few words in the last few months trying to say what Chris Jones, one of the best magazine journalists working today, summed up in one little declaration on Monday, writing about The Kansas City Star's departed sports columnist:

"Jason Whitlock has no soul."

He went on from there, trying his best to steer aspiring writers away from becoming little Whitlocks:

Well, here's the stone-cold truth, kids: Jason

Whitlock has no soul. He's neither a good reporter nor a good writer.

He's a bloviator who's somehow carved out a niche for himself as a kind

of anti-establishment figure by making references to The Wire and

pretending he's the second coming of Ralph Wiley, when Ralph Wiley

would be fucking mortified to be associated with Whitlock's brand of

self-serving buffoonery.

All true. Read the rest of Jones' piece on his personal blog, sonofboldventure.com.
