Times Tit For Tat?

By Chris Ariens 

The Talking Biz News blog has an item related to the not-so-nice review of Fox Business Network by Joe Nocera of The NYTimes. The Nocera piece begins: “It was Thursday around 4:30, and I couldn’t take it anymore.” Ouch!

Well the Foxies (or really News Corp.ers) are firing back. A News Corp. insider tells Talking Biz News that Nocera has been angling for a job at the soon to be News Corp.-owned Wall Street Journal. “[Nocera] was looking for better real estate given his column runs on Saturdays, but he’s too lazy for the Journal,” says the News Corp. insider.

>More from an emailer: “hard to imagine that Nocera is all THAT lazy, given that he was a Pulitzer finalist last year.”

>Update: The Talking Biz News blog has removed the original story and replaced it with these comments from Joe Nocera.
