Gray Lady Down

When the erstwhile leading voice in print media of the United States, the New York Times, has this sort of thing appearing in print, you've really got to wonder:
My editor asked me to write a critique of the two men’s attire on the day of the announcement in Virginia, thinking there might be something in their casual look.
The idea of politicians deliberating over what message their clothing conveys enchants editors. They tend to overestimate the effects of a generic blazer or give too much credit to mysterious back-room handlers. It amounts to an idealization of the image-making process, a hoax. In truth, there are no real differences of style and message in the clothing of the current presidential candidates, which is too bad.
Really? Is that cutting journalism? I think, I would have turned to my editor and asked, "What are you thinking?"

But, dutifully the liberal, mouth-breathing, superficialist cobbled together an article:

First We Demean the Conservative Then We Bring in a Macho-Envy Vibe 

Does Cathy want Ryan in one of those "Look at me, I'm gay" new-style mini-suits that look as though you outgrew them five years ago and then shrunk them on purpose to give you a hip look as you sip a Cosmo?

Seriously is that the image the public thinks of when you say the word "Man"??? My god no wonder we are in such a mess.
