Thank heaven there's always the failing New York Times to fill the void. Don Surber: "It's official: NYT couldn't cover a Dumpster fire in its newsroom."
How lousy is the New York Times today? Its staff is so inept that it would not be able to cover a Dumpster fire in its newsroom.The reviewer was a recent hire of editorial editor James "I don't read the paper" Bennet.
Here was the set-up. A staffer ("a contributing writer") for the New York Times Magazine wrote a book. The editors assigned another staffer to review the book.
Not only did the book reviewer pan the book, but she made numerous errors in the review, so many that the Times had to issue a lengthy correction -- which only brought further attention to the author getting a bad review.
