Equine's Posterior Award™, January 2007, supplemental pick.




Today's New York Times featured a self-fellating eight-page supplement titled "It's about the journalism. Period." Several reporters were nicely serviced, with the back page hummer saved for media reporter and first monkey in cyberspace David Carr. For comparing his new blog to one of the most important moments in the history of science, Carr receives a special supplemental chocolate Horse's Ass Award. Congrats Carpetbagger!
previous Equine's Posterior Award™ winners:
1. Michael Goldberg, chief marketing officer, Zimmerman, Omnicom Group.
2. David Roman, marketing VP, HP.

May I recommend that he receive only half the chocolate ass - because his is a really half-assed, self aggrandizing moment. Then again, maybe that qualifies him as the full dumb ass.

Writing for a paper that issues the standing taunt "the only news...." lends itself to such organizational ego-assdom, I suspect.

The first monkey in space actually drowned upon re-entry. And if he was referring to the first animal in space, well, that would be a dog, which, ironically, also died when its rocket burned up upon re-entry.

Just sayin.

Laika the Soviet dog died from stress and overheating, only a couple hours after launch. They didn't plan it very well for her.

Writing about movies is useless.
Reading about them is double useless.
Paying someone to write it is fucking useless.
And interviewing someone who will eventually write a blog...now that's NYT style useless.
