Rooms For Rent at New York Times

The New York Times' unrestrained plunge into leftist advocacy journalism under the regime of the clueless moonbat Pinch Sulzberger is not panning out financially, as evidenced by the paper's increasing financial desperation.

The Gray Lady's bean-counters are finding that they can't afford to move all their staffers into their opulent new headquarters scheduled to open in the spring, and are trying to find tenants for more of the floors. One sixth of the Times' total space in the new building is already on the market, and this will be increased. Even though space has been freed up by 750 job cuts since 2005, some departments will be moved to lower-cost office space. The Times may mortgage its stake in the new building to raise money.

Pinching pennies to get by.

Traitors for sale or rent,
Rooms to let fifty cents,
No news, no sales, no picks,
We ain't go no damned ethics!

Two hours of food and booze
Buys you a whole page of news
We're a paper'of means by no means
Hittin the road...

damn, I should have had "King of the frauds" as the last line. Oh well.

One wonders if Pinch has taken a pay cut in order to help the NYT's budgeting woes? Somehow I doubt it.

I got to the last few lines before I recognized "King of the Road". Had to re-read it with the right tune in my head.

Of course, now I'll be humming it the rest of the day.

Very good.

Doesn't Pinch Sulzberger look like Alfred E. Neuman?

OTOH, MAD magazine tends to be more accurate than the NYT.
