Lots of excited commentary on my satiric piece about Chelsea Clinton’s baby. A sampling:
I didn’t realize that Media Research Center had a pretty robust web page devoted entirely to, er, polite differences of opinion with the New York Times (and has me featured at the moment). Check it out.
Mickey Kaus dissects how the New York Times works (of course they launder their lefty views through “critics say,” “analysts say,” “a report says,” or “liberal academics say,” then promote such opinion pieces on page one, often with an additional suggestion that differing viewpoints are unpopular or even marginal) and how it is becoming more […]
On Thursday, the New York Times quoted its new top editor Jill Abramson as saying the paper had been a substitute for religion to her. Among the tens of thousands of words published on the paper’s website that day, these were the most interesting. Yet they subsequently disappeared from the site, apparently permanently, to be […]
I’m not sure it’s all that funny to watch an image of the New York Times building in flames. 9/11 wasn’t that long ago. As for why Hendra, who played the manager in “Spinal Tap” and once edited National Lampoon, might fantasize about burning down the HQ of the Times, maybe it has something to […]
Okay, it’s a little bit gross. Two cheating hearts meet, and before long they’re dumping their spouses for each other. Life is indeed complicated, but I don’t see anything much to boast about when you’re forced to mark down your marriage as a big fail. Best bet is to keep quiet about it. But you […]
Daffy’s moves into old New York Times space. Dizzy thinking will continue at the current New York Times space.
For those myriad New Yorkers and residents of surrounding suburbs who have ached for a true alternative to the New York Times — a broadsheet treatment of the same ground — that day is finally come. The Wall Street Journal, whose circulation is already double the Times’, launches its new greater New York section today. […]
You have to love the NYT Picker, the unofficial New York Times watchdog site. Today they expose how a key Times writer on health-care issues earns more than $500,000 a year from the industry and holds more than $5 million in stock. He even sits on health-company boards.
John Nolte has an insightful post about how critics are forever writing about the death of criticism. Nolte points out that he never goes to a movie because some critic liked it but he did enjoy listening to Siskel & Ebert argue because they were sharp, interesting guys. I was thinking much the same thing […]« Previous Entries
