Stop Calling The Financial Times ‘Pink’

Correction:

In a post last week about the potential sale of The Financial Times, FishbowlNY mistakenly described the FT as simply “pink.” As The New York Times notes, this was a gross mischaracterization.

The FT’s website insists that the paper is not just pink, it is “salmon pink.” And even if we had called it that — according to someone who works at a real, actual place called the Pantone Color Institute — we would have still been wrong. The FT, said the Pantone executive, is “bisque,” which is “a warm, welcoming, nurturing color.”

From now on FishbowlNY will refer to the FT as salmon pink; or if we’re sort of hungry, bisque. We apologize for the inaccuracy in the last post.
