The NYT published two items this week that got up people’s noses.
The first, by Kansas City expat Art Brisbane, was such a head-scratcher the nation’s elite journalists are still talking about it. 2 The second piece was a minor reflection on one Jew’s diaspora here in the Midwest.
The national reaction to the Brisbane piece stopped just short of calling for the Times to fire their ombudsman. There wasn’t any national response to speak of on Sulzberger’s piece.
Locally Brisbane’s glaring misstep went unremarked.
For my money, M.V. nails this podunk town’s reaction.
Keep washing those hands, Kansas City.
