Man Bites Dog: Friedman Derides Fluff!

Gotta love the guy

Marketwatch's media columnist Jon Friedman has the following words of encouragement for Newsweek:
I hope Newsweek doesn't buckle--and I doubt that it will. I'd be surprised if it pulled back the reins and started publishing squishy, fluffy cover stories as a way to get the critics off its back.
Nor should it overcompensate for this crisis by going out of its way to show that it is hanging tough by printing gratuitous stories about Bush or the military.

This from the author of a series of puff pieces on other media columnists, who then overcompensates by bashing Newsweek. Got to say this about Friedman -- he's always good for a laugh.
