Media Musings: I mentioned this late last night on twitter, but the online rumble between a few Philly newspaper guys is worth nothing here. It appears as if John Gonzalez of the Inquirer fired the first shot, then David Murphy of the Daily News landed a haymaker, apologized for said haymaker, and then explained his position. Gonzalez proceeded to go off, dragged Dan Gross of the Daily News into it, and the benches emptied. Unfortunately, it was broken up without further incident. We need more newspaper brouhahas like this. Everyone wins. The Fightins have a fantastic recap of the kerfuffle.
