Pick Your Poison

I had a friend from New York email a link to a Columbia Journalism Review article written in full Murdoch Derangement Mode incensed that Rupert Murdoch is defending himself against being smeared by the New York Times (also in full Murdoch Derangement Mode). As I wrote back (and I believe somebody already suggested this in NRO’s Corner) I’m fine with Murdoch owning the Wall Street Journal. As long as the Page 3 girls will be illustrated in that familiar wood-carved line drawing style that the Journal has historically used.

Call my priorities woefully misplaced, but this, on the other hand, I’m a little more concerned about. Though not at all surprised; especially after Reuters’ Picture Kill trainwreck last year.
