The Decline and Fall of the New York Times (Cont’d)

I often think the Wall Street Journal‘s James Taranto is too hard on the people he targets for criticism — an occupational hazard for someone who brandishes a poison pen as well as he does.

Not today.  Not when his target is the New York Times. Attaboy, James.

    You’ve been a busy boy, Granulous. Huzzah, I say to you.

    My schadenfreude organ is never more engorged than when I’m enjoying the agonized wrastling of the fading Paper of Record.

    The funniest line from that link, for me, was: “But others do, and a newspaper like The Times needs to be alert to them or wind up looking clueless or, worse, partisan itself.”

    The Times looking partisan? I guess the Sasquatch should take care that he not be thought of as hairy.

    Would love to see an ugly bankruptcy followed by a vulture takeover and a conversion of the paper to a tabloid. The proper end to a downright sinister institution. That’ll fix them for treating William Safire with daily contempt.

    It costs about $750/year for home delivery of The Times. One can get the same stories free of charge by visiting the White House’s website. And for that (in)famous Times balance, one can flip over to the DNC’s website.

    RIP.
