The New York Times are fucking morons

The New York Times writer Catherine Rampell hit a new low of utter stupidity today claiming that Apple wants to purposely “bust your iPhone.” I’m not even going to link to the pathetic excuse for an article—instead, read Brian Barrett’s takedown on Gizmodo. At least he put some thought into what he wrote.

    She writes about economics and theater for the NYT’s. She just got confused with the two.

      Theaternomics, if you will.

    You call them “fucking morons,” but I think you’re giving them too much credit.

      That was brilliant. Simply brilliant.

    You didn’t see this one? (Sorry in advance for the link!) http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/10/23/the-repetition-of-apple-keynote-presentations-feel-boring/?_r=0

    Free Mavericks alone is worth at least a tiny little ‘wow’, no? Even just a small one? We’ll not even mention all the rest… This “article” made the back page of the International New York times here in Paris, guaranteeing I’ll never buy this paper ever again.

    The comments are even worse then the article. Its a huge bitch fest about their old iphones.

    Here’s what I want to know: In 1985 when there was no Internet, were the newspapers and magazines just as bad as they are now in terms of trolling? Did they write about stuff that wasn’t totally true to get more readers? I don’t mean the fake rags at the supermarket checkout counter, I’m talking about the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, etc. Back then there was no real ability to do “instant fact checking” like we have on the net today. I’m sure it happened back then, but has the Internet caused an increase in bad journalism because these places are scared to death of going out of business?

      They should be scared. But lying ain’t no way to make a livin’, boy.

  • Terry Maraccini

    At least Apple doesn’t make your phone smell like cat pee.

    You can’t wrap fish with an iPhone

    Do you think this was her audition piece to take over from Pogue as NYT tech reporter?
