It's Official: New York Now One Gigantic Tom Wolfe Novel

“DSK’s New Enemy is… the Black Panthers?,” Website Mogulite asks:

It seemed like Dominique Strauss-Kahn was off the hook. But one group’s still after him: the New Black Panther Party.The Village Voice reports that last night about 20 members of the New Black Panther Party were assembled outside the now famous 153 Franklin Street townhouse where DSK did his house arrest (and where we coincidentally threw a party a few weeks before he moved in. Here’s our inside tour of the spot). Leaders of the group, standing on the Tribeca street, apparently shouted, “There is no hiding place, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, for you tonight,” from megaphones. Wow.

“The only problem: DSK apparently wasn’t home. Well, that’s probably because he’s not on house arrest anymore. Of course the Panthers say they’ll be back weekly, so we’re sure the two parties will cross paths eventually,”Mogulite adds.

I know just the place on Park Avenue to broker a meeting, don’t you?

Meanwhile, from Radical Chic, we turn to news fresh out of Bonfire of the Vanities: Rev. Bacon may soon have his own MSNBC TV series:

Now TVNewser hears Uygur may be moved out of the 6pm hour, possibly to be replaced by Al Sharpton. When the host changes happened earlier this year, the 6pm hour was simply known as “MSNBC Live,” a telling sign that MSNBC was trying out Uygur.

Which oddly makes sense from MSNBC’s point of view, considering they’ve already lost one fire and brimstone preacher.
