EXCELLENT BOMBSHELL: THE STUNNINGLY SLOW, SLIPPERY AND OUTSTANDINGLY SAD, DOWN-MARKET DECLINE OF THE ONCE-RESPECTABLE NEW YORK TIMES

Reading The New York Times weak and Excellently embarrassing, tabloid-y, conjecture-ridden, political hit piece Aide’s Quick Rise Draws Scrutiny, the long-awaited, much-discussed “bombshell” rumored, before publication on February 17, 2010, to be a highly-salacious expose on the possibly resignation-worthy shenanigans of David A. Paterson, the beleaguered, yet bravely resilient, legally blind, Black Governor of New York, written by Danny Halkim and Williams K. Rashbaum, (with additional National Enquirer-like reporting by four other Times staffers), featuring yawn-inducing details and dubious, unattributed, anonymously sourced quotes, about the fast and furious rise of Paterson’s chief aide and closest confidant, David W. Johnson, a former troubled Harlem-born teen, now 37, with a possibly still-violent temper (or possibly not), who has quickly risen from intern to driver to become a chief aide and $132,000-a-year strategist in the Governor’s office at the Executive Mansion in Albany.

The news that's not fit to print: David W. Johnson, right, with Gov. David A. Paterson last February, has become increasingly important on the governor’s staff, according to the once great New York Times. Image by Nathaniel Brooks for The New York Times via nytimes.com.
