Journalist Would Have Been Happy with Hitler Offing Bloggers

In defending his defense of National League Baseball's 2007 MVP (Philadelphia's Jimmy Rollins), Philadephia Daily News Sports Reporter Bill Conlin responded thusly to a blogging Philly fan who questioned his defense:
The only positive thing I can think of about Hitler’s time on earth–I’m sure he would have eliminated all bloggers. In Colonial times, bloggers were called “Pamphleteers.” They hung on street corners handing them out to passersby. Now, they hang out on electronic street corners, hoping somebody mouses on to their pretentious sites.
Is Conlin merely expressing out loud what many other journalists quietly desire?
