Perhaps all the top editors were partying in the Hamptons, too. It is the end of August. Whatever the reason, someone at The New York Times seems to have forgotten to read all the Sunday paper’s section fronts before rolling the presses.
The banner headline of the Sunday Styles section read, “The Night is Young.” (The read-out deck read, “In the Hamptons, much of the summer party scene is ruled by club promoters who themselves are barely old enough to drink.”)
And in the very next section, Sunday Business, the banner head read: “In Silicon Valley, the Night is Still Young.”
At The Times New York office, perhaps the headline on the bulletin board memo reads, “The Times is Still Looking for Young Readers.”
What do you think? I’m not sure pandering will do the trick.
