To honor his memory, the New York Times wil commission a Presidential race poll that overstates Democrats by 20%, rather than overstating them by the usual 10%.

Considering the shiat I had to go through to cancel my NY Times subscription, I'm glad he's dead and, unfortunately, I guess I hope his paper follows him soon.

I enjoyed reading the Times and being able to see digital content from last century. But when you can't cancel your subscription from their website, when you have to call a telephone number to cancel and their operators are rude and don't want to help you, then fark the Times.

I posted this in a thread about whining New York Times columnists:

I like to take a paper punch and poke a mouth hole in their little by-line portraits. Then I roll up a little paper penis and face fark them with it while CNN blares in the background.

FTFA: " At Mr. Sulzberger's death, The Times was being run by a fourth generation of his family, a rarity in an age when the management of most American newspapers is determined by distant corporate boards. A family trust, unaffected by his death, guarantees continued control by Adolph Ochs's descendants.

It was no coincidence, Mr. Sulzberger believed, that some of the country's finest newspapers were family-owned. "My conclusion is simple," he once said with characteristic humor. "Nepotism works." "

So, in other words, multi-generational trust-fund babies born into aristocracy with silver spoons in their mouths who get to use their un-earned, tax-free wealth to berate, influence and govern the rest of us for our own good?

Didn't we fight a revolution to get away from these clowns?
