NYT in 90 Seconds


  • The Economist‘s U.S. editor becomes its chief.
  • Although Game of Shadows, the book that blasts Barry Bonds, “reprises much of the information contained in the authors’ San Francisco Chronicle articles” and raises many of the same issues Howard Bryant‘s Juicing the Game did, it remains necessary reading.
  • Falsifying résumés is the new rich.
  • President Bush looking for the political Mariano Rivera to close his final term as president.
  • A pre-emptive censoring, courtesy of The WB.
  • Steve Buscemi, a.k.a our favorite Park Sloper, takes the F train to NYT interviews, which makes him real New Yorker, of course.
