Link: 50-year Subscriber Calls NYT “A Slut, Whoring After Youth”

The NYTPicker is one of my favorite media criticism blogs, and this post is a winner. Writer Joseph Epstein, who subscribed to the New York Times for 50 years, cancels his subscription because:

“…the Gray Lady is far from the grande dame she once was. For years now she has been going heavy on the rouge, lipstick, and eyeliner, using a push-up bra, and gadding about in stiletto heels. She’s become a bit—perhaps more than a bit—of a slut, whoring after youth through pretending to be with-it. I’ve had it with the old broad; after nearly 50 years together, I’ve determined to cut her loose.”
