75. Man

I'm too tired to go further on this tonight, but are you sure that you aren't translating "you" into the public-at-large?

I am guessing you are a good stretch more informed - and able to process these materials - than the average consumer of media.

This almost seems like blaming the victim. Maybe it's the ex-journalist in me, but I refuse to believe that we cannot and should not do better.

And as to the NYT's apology - circumstances happen to be that I had an unusual degree of familiarity with that deal from start to finish - and I can elaborate circumspectly in a PM, but flat out there are things that I am ethically-bound to not elaborate on - and there is no way to pull clarity or satisfaction from either the Times' apology, or really any sort of apology that they could have offered. That is a really ugly story, and with access to versions from the most inclined to see things in a favorable light, my conclusion is that there's not enough makeup in the world to cover up the blemishes. I haven't already said too much, but I'm not going to say too much, so that's all I'm going to say about that.
