A Washington Post metro reporter wrote a blog post yesterday criticizing his own paper's editorial board, which pissed them off so much they deleted it. Then it went back up, in an edited form. Now all the WaPo editorial board people are still pissed off about it. Hey, WaPo editorial board: stop being such pussies. Also, you suck. Heh. (See, it doesn't kill you!)
We hear the WSJ has hired Erica Orden and Kate Taylor as arts and culture writers for the paper's new NYC edition. Both have written for New York magazine and the NY Sun, making them another part of the Sun's ongoing resurrection inside the WSJ building. [Oh, update: This was actually in John Koblin's NYO story yesterday. Merp.]
What, you think government subsidies for the media are some sort of new idea?!? (Just go with it). Well they're not, and here is a big old study to prove that they're not. You and your foolish, foolish ideas. When will you grow up?
