BBC journalist Andrew Marr has slammed online bloggers in a speech to the Cheltenham Literature Festival.

According to the Telegraph, Marr said: “Most citizen journalism strikes me as nothing to do with journalism at all.”

In his speech, which covered the way modern technology is changing the face of news reporting, Marr continued: “A lot of bloggers seem to be socially inadequate, pimpled, single, slightly seedy, bald, cauliflower-nosed, young men sitting in their mother's basements and ranting. They are very angry people.

"Okay – the country is full of very angry people. Many of us are angry people at times. Some of us are angry and drunk. But the so-called citizen journalism is the spewings and rantings of very drunk people late at night.”
