Pander: To cater to the lower tastes and desires of others in order to exploit their weaknesses.
One of the greatest weaknesses of the Web 2 "revolution" is just how much the online "community" subtly, passively, fosters pandering. It's awful. You want Rubel-Scoble-Penelope-Trunk-like numbers, do as they do: tell your audience what they want to hear. Tell 'em they're smart, influential, talented, whatever. Further, throw a little "link love" their way. God, it's just sickening. Worse yet, most offenders don't even realize they're doing it. It's the culture.
With that in mind, regrettably I'm gonna call a friend to task here. I really like Mark Ragan, CEO of Ragan Communications. That's why I am so incredibly disappointed by a recent video of his on MyRaganTV. "Banned from the Blogosphere" does absolutely nothing but pander to the junior-most levels of the PR business.
Anyway, Mark asked that I comment on MyRagan. But for what? For an audience that's comforted by pandering?! Forget it. The ear for challenge, if there is one, is right here.

No real reason, he was just irritated by our teasing him about getting in bed with pornographer Joe Francis. Anyway, Ronn gave his obscenity-laced word that we'd see the complaint in 72 hours.
