    There was a fine novel a while back called Dwarf Rapes Nun; Flees in Ufo – a Novel of Journalism by Arnold Sawislak that dealt with the (at the time) increasingly common practice of turning staid traditional newspaper into seamy yellow rags. And does anyone but me remember a delighful Britcom from the early 90's called Hot Metal about the British tabloid insustry?"It’s sad that New York journalism has deteriorated to this level."If anything, they've got a ways to go till they return to the glory days of yellow jourablism, where stories were regularly cut from whole cloth. Giant telescopes revealing bat-creatures on the moon, the escape of the animals in the Central Park Zoo…classics from the days when people had both a pair and a sense of humor.

    I do remember "Hot Metal" but feel "Drop the dead donkey" UK TV show did a better job of showing journalism on the slide.

      "Drop the dead donkey" would be perceived as a right-wing political show out here in the States, probably on Fox.Hmmm… I think we've given 'em an idea.

    Sorry, but you've forgotten the New York Daily News headline reporting a state transit bailout in 1980: SICK TRANSIT'S GLORIOUS MONDAY.

    • Mike Gold says:

      I didn't forget it. It just ain't no HEADLESS BODY IN TOPLESS BAR.And NYC's transit is still sick.

    One of the most commented stories here in recent days is the Harry Bliss/Jack Kirby Kerfuffle, a story championed by the New York Post. Hmm.
