NYT: Clueless and lazy is no way to run a newspaper


Mistermix at Balloon Juice points out the front page of today’s New York Times. Thousands of people gather around the world to protest the growing inequality of wealth distribution, and it merits a mention at the bottom of the front page.

The same thing happens with the web site. Load the front page and there’s a blurb as well.

Totally clueless about what’s the news today, that’s your “old gray lady” at work.

    To be fair, nytimes.com did feature the article more prominently at times during the day. I remember seeing it occupying the position that “Romney Beating Obama” holds in your screen shot.

This is not my beautiful house!

Many moons ago in the blogosphere there was a minor writer with the moniker “Bryan S.” who flew the flag of “Arguing with Signposts.” His politics were vaguely conservative, warblogger, humorist, cynic, libertarian. In short, he screwed all that up. So, you might say this is my attempt to set that stuff straight. The flag is flying again. But we’ve set a course that’s at odds with the haze of the last eight years. Onward!
