Same steak, better sizzle

As if you needed more evidence that the Boston Globe is The New York Times lite, now the Globe is just running NYT stories.

Yesterday, the Globe's business section fronted a story about a stylish new paint for firearms, by Rob Walker. When I saw it I thought "Strange, since he also writes for the Times, that they'd run a piece by him."

Stranger still when I saw the same piece in the Times Magazine.

To those not in the news business it probably doesn't seem that strange, but this type of corporate synergy (The Times owns the Globe) is very unusual in media.

Keep up the aggressive monitoring of all things media, NB. Don't ever go away!

Jackie Mason was saying just the other night on my local FM talk radio station that everyone from the NYT should be shot. In the street. Editorial board first, and then the rest of the staff. No one is to be spared. Perhaps the future Mrs. N-B would be wise to hire a security detail. No one is safe from the ever moral democracy first crowd.
