End of the World at the NYT

CBS ad on the front page of the New York Times"Great Caesar’s Ghost" Daily Planet editor Perry White was heard to exclaim from the grave. Journalism as we know it ceased to exist as of Monday, Jan. 5, 2009.

The end came as the New York Times, that bastion of all things journalistic (and they would say of all things just and politically correct), ran a four-color advertisement from CBS on its front page. The culprits in charge explained that it was okay because the ad appeared at the bottom of the page, and thus "below the fold."

I see.
