Note: "collect paycheck" was stolen from either a Suck or a Reason piece (who can tell the difference anymore!) about Mike Davis.

What do you expect? American Prospect was relevant when, exactly?

"Crazy Bob" Kuttner isn't exactly young. If I were in a snarkier mood, I'd also dispute his standing as a journalist.

As usual, Kuttner has nothing to say of consequence. More comments:

I think Kuttner was meant to be the "non-descriminating editor" in this anecdote, not the "young journalist."

Quite right, Jim. Whoops.

I thought the way to become a media critic was to break a corruption story on some famous politician, who's got ties to your publisher, who then kills the story and then demotes you.

IIRC, this happened to some Irish fellow in New England.

I know I read about it somewhere ....
