Another Bullet in the Old Gray Lady’s Ass

Whatever happened to those “layers” of editors?

It’s official: The Times got pranked last month by the girls of “Dating a Banker Anonymous,” referred to in a fizzy Times profile last month as a “support group” dedicated to women whose “monthly Bergdorf’s allowance has been halved.”

Linda Holmes, blogging at National Public Radio, was dubious from the start: “Isn’t it totally obvious that this is a put-on?” She dismissed the idea of a “support group” and figured the people behind the blog were angling for a book deal. The Times responded to Holmes, defending the piece and snottily concluding:

I’m not sure what is thought might be fake about this. Ravi did talk to some of the men to verify the relationships and get their side.

Schmucks.


the bullet list.
