NY Times Valhalla vs. Low Sloping Foreheads in Flyover Country

Anne Leary

Yeah. They hate us.

We're stalkers (as I recall her mom didn't know where Omaha was. Or Nebraska. After my friend said halfway between Chicago and Denver she didn't ask where is that any more, but still looked confused)

We're racists. Oh, yeah.

Women haters.

We're the faith-based bigots:
It may be the most revealing quote ever published in the New York Times. It appears in a story about the New York Times, and its source is a top editor of the New York Times: Jill Abramson, who will become the top editor of the New York Times in September, when Bill Keller steps down, the New York Times reports:
Ms. Abramson said that as a born-and-raised New Yorker, she considered being named editor of The Times to be like "ascending to Valhalla."
"In my house growing up, The Times substituted for religion," she said. "If The Times said it, it was the absolute truth."
The Times has of late acted a great deal like a corrupt religious institution.
The aristobrats are on display. DSK and their fellow elitist ignoramuses on this side of the pond.
