A few months ago, Presstorm.com consisted of a group of mostly well-meaning writers commenting on topics that were purportedly too hard-hitting for mainstream media. Some of these writers were serious journalists and some wrote meaningful editorials. Now there is nothing left but the pedantic opining of Jamie Jo Corne, although no one knows what her real name is. Incredibly, Corne has lost nearly 900 followers on Twitter in the past two weeks. She is truly a desperate outcast.
Jamie Jo Corne is an ex-con with a history of personality and mood disorders and also the mother of a very old man’s children. That’s a lot of cannon fodder for the trolls of the internet, but it’s definitely not enough, on its own, to justify the level of hate the internet has for Corne. In all frankness, Corne has the internet’s worst case of Unwarranted Self Importance, a subject the writers at Chronicle.SU hold several doctorates in. We teach a class every other Tuesday at Virginia Western Community College, if you’re interested.
Presstorm.com masquerades as investigative journalism, but it is no more than a soapbox for the rantings of Jamie Jo Corne. In her latest piece about Anonymous, The Passion of Slavery Within Anonymous, Corne extensively quotes the founding fathers, who themselves were slavers. Corne’s thesis that anonymity is the tool of the cowardly social reformer is an old argument that might have pissed off Anonymous at one point in time, but no one cares anymore.
In another story, Jamie Jo Corne chronicles her “investigation” of Anonymous, where she spent ten months on friendly terms with the collective she now hates. Corne claims that in the ten months investigating, the most insightful thing she learned was that “the majority of Anonymous was much like a cult.” Not much of an investigation, and again, this is well-trodden ground. The word cult has a lot of meaningless negative connotations, but yes, we all know Anonymous is like a cult. Any subculture like punks or hippies have these features. Again, the “investigation” yields nothing of value.
In conclusion, unfollow @JamieCorne so I can stop writing about her. Create some Anonymous operation or campaign if you have to. I keep looking for something of value in Jamie Jo Corne, but it’s not there. This shit is a big waste of my time. Each rule 34 makes me die a little more on the inside, because I know she just enjoys the attention.
