In your blizzardy Wednesday media column: Luke Russert does it the Luke Russert way, the NYT has no iPad comment, a new journalism moneymaking scheme, and David Remnick acts so haughty you'd think he runs America's best magazine or something.
Even though the New York Times managed to make some money last year, they didn't say a dadgum thing about the iPad during their earnings call! The iPad is all that humans care about now NYT, get with the "program," okay?
The latest thing that a journalist is doing to try to make money and thereby not starve: a former religion reporter and a former con man are forming a business reporting venture in which they do investigative reporting on companies, then short the stock. Clearly, the money here will be made when they sell the odd-couple screwball comedy screenplay.
David Remnick on whether the National Enquirer should win a Pulitzer: "I'm not a ridiculous prude about it, but: is that a great achievement of journalism?" Hello, pretentious. Who the fuck are you, Seymour Hersh's editor?
