Amanda Congdon Canned at ABC? Can Micki Krimmel Replace?

Amanda “RocketBazooms” Congdon won’t continue as part of the ABC.com News Empire or at least Gawker is floating that hope.

And if ABC needs a replacement–may we suggest vlogger/scofflaw Micki Krimmel

Krimmel shot a video–while driving–after getting a ticket for nearly clocking a pedestrian on Highland. She’s got a curiously compelling style. A little whiney, but so real.

The commenters at Blogging.la weren’t very sympathetic, but FBLA applauds a good multitasking rant.

Amanda Congdon On Virginia Tech, New Media

ABC News.com , cranky about NBC’s popularity, stifles any lingering sense of journalistic integrity, and offers up Amanda “Rocketbazooms” Congdon on the Virginia Tech shootings and how New Media rose to the occasion, all in a pseudo-serious tone. So meta.

She (or someone) also rifled around her bookmarks to find Loren Coleman and his research on the copycat effect. All that va-voom and research skills, too!

Jeff Jarvis, meanwhile, has a suggestion for the future:

put a webcam in every classroom for security. At elementary and high schools, at least, every class in my town’s schools has at least one PC.

And then everyone, everywhere can watch tragedy unfold.
