    I said when I was in the bidness I wanted to attend one of their morning meetings. I still do.

    I think it goes without saying that's a tad over the top. I've never ever seen a headline like that.

    To hell with the morning meeting.
    How about the meeting of the headline writers?

    "'GOTCHA' with a slammer."

    "Yes, because God forbid this paper ever run something without an exclamation point."

    They've retired the trophy for the niche, domestically.

    It's their world.

    I love the comment by Gawker on this series of Post front pages:
    "From moral outrage to "here is a picture of a topless hooker" in three days. Kudos, New York Post. A grateful nation salutes you."

    Ho no!

    Ho no indeed.

    At an old shop, we'd have a NY Post headline writing contest. Good stuff, of course they never saw the light of day, but it was still amusing.

    Thank God for the New York Post.
     
  11. Wow. So daddy does the interview and allows the paper to take his photo - only to open the paper the next day and see that headline.

    No shame.

    For some, any attention is good attention.
