Another Wasted Column Promised!

The Empty Suit, New York Times spokesman (a/k/a "public editor") Barney Calame, who wasted his last column with a self-serving discussion of "Times staff attitudes toward readers", promises more of the same this Sunday. So says his web journal.

Discussing the Judith Miller disaster, which Calame has conspicuously failed to touch, the Empty Suit says he can't do anything this week because "the space Sunday will be devoted to reader letters about my two previous columns, as regularly scheduled."

That is to say, "scheduled" by the Suit, who prefers publishing reader columns to actually doing his job.

This is now the fourth time that this parody of a public editor will have shirked his responsibilities by wasting a column. As I pointed out some months ago, Calame first resorted to a letters column after appearing in print a grand total of three times.
