FORMER KANSAS CITY STAR NEWSIE ART BRISBANE AND HIS NEW YORK TIMES FAIL!!!
Here's a hilarious Kansas City journalism trend . . .
(CHICKEN) GENIUS KANSAS CITY DEAD TREE MEDIA JOURNALISTS USUALLY FAIL WHEN THEY STEP UP TO THE BIG LEAGUES IN OTHER TOWNS!!!
The latest example:
New York Observer: The New York Times Can Not Get Rid of Arthur Brisbane Fast Enough
The story is really about newie ethics that are mostly a myth and interesting only to journalists who are better at having drinks than writing stories . . .
Still, let's add up the damage . . .
- A staunch Kansas City Dead Tree newsie stepped up to one of the wire services in D.C. a few years ago and came back to KC under cover of night and now works at an insurance company I think . . .
- Posnanski's book has met with universal derision in much the same way most folks hate sex abuse which the stinky opus pretty much skips over.
- And we thought Big Sexy would make a bigger dent on the national scene but without the pressure of a regular column he seems mostly confined to Twitter.
And all of this would make us respect Mike "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?" Hendricks if thinking about him hoping to keep scaled back paychecks coming in wasn't soooooo very sad.
