Laughing at them...

Commenting on , which deals with Mike White's characterization of Judd Apatow's recent work as "comedy of the bullies, rather than the bullied", Reihan writes:

"You can't dismiss Mike White, a major comedy innovator, as a humorless prig."

I dunno:

I think it's possibly to be really funny in terms of your creative output and still be kind of a humorless prig when it comes to talking about comedy - especially other people's comedy. Isn't this kind of the case when, say, Bill Cosby - who is, without question, more of a comedy innovator than White - chides comedians for going blue?
