The NYT takes CF's advice!November 13, 2008 3:23 PM EST ››› ERIC BOEHLERT
Well, that's our story and we're sticking with.
But in truth, we doubt news from the Times today that Patrick "Cackle" Healy is moving off the politics beat and will now be covering Broadway has much to do with our constant critiques of Healy's dreadful, trivia-obsessed work (as we quote ourselves at length):
The New York Times has a long, proud tradition of highlighting campaign reporters who are able to size up elections and write with grace and insight about unfolding events and help make the campaign more sensible for readers.
Patrick Healy pretty much does the opposite.
Whether or not we can take credit, we still think the latest personnel move is best for everyone involved. (Especially CF!)
