First Draft: Three Reporters: The Internet continues its slaughter of serious journalism about serious things:
New York Times reporters Helene Cooper, Peter Baker and Jeff Zeleny live-blogged the so-called beer summit of President Obama, Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and the officer who arrested him in Cambridge nearly two weeks ago, Sgt. James Crowley.
It took three of them to "live-blog" the "beer summit." I mean, I'm sorry, but Puck and Willie B could have handled that assignment admirably and Puck just right now ran headfirst into a table leg, so.
Five years, New York Times. I give you five years--and then you are gone.
Why oh why can't we have a better press corps?
