It's the year 2011 for God's sake.
Despite all their myriad longstanding problems, which I've chronicled on my blog at great length, the Miami Herald and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel ACTUALLY run their management's email addresses on their websites and in the newspaper, since as you all know from what I've written and posted here over the past few years, I heard more than a few times from former Herald Senior VP and Executive Editor Anders Gyllenhaal, so why won't the NewTimes?
You already know the maxim about the goose and the gander, there's no need for me to repeat it here. But it IS very noticeable that the NewTimes doesn't practice what they preach.
And just out of curiosity, how much money do you think the NewTimes make a year from their escort/sex ads?
And why do the Herald and Sun-Sentinel never take anyone there to task when they make self-evident factual mistakes, or seem to conspicuously leave out pertinent facts from a so-called article, even though it so often reads like a personal or political screed, which had pretty much been the situation at The Juice blog since Thomas Francis left? http://blogs.browardpalmbeach.com/juice/
Though I have been listed on their blog roll for a few years, I haven't read it since Thomas left, since it seems to be nothing but shallow screeds preaching to the choir, of which their current offering is par for the course.
And if you guessed that they used Allen West's name in the headline -again!- go to the head of the class.
In that sense, they're like the oddball guy who keeps showing up at the beach or park with a snake on his shoulder, so desperate to get attention that he'll do anything.
It's sorta funny, but mostly, it's just sad, and a waste of space.
Personally, I'd much rather pay a dollar or two every week and have more well-written stories and less schlocky articles and ads.
But that's just me.
I guess there's gold in them thar escort ads.
