New York Times' Rich Niche

Monday, May 19, 2008
Times are tough. The economy is in bad shape. So is the environment. And there are natural disasters left and right.
The Times does a commendable job covering some of the atrocious things going on around the world.
I'm not saying they are ignoring important stories, because they are not, but there is a trend in their trend stories that is eye-roll inducing.

It's the "things rich people need to cut back on" series:
Laser eye correction!
Dry cleaned sheets, upscale dog-grooming!
and most recently,
Luxury boats!
Sure, they all have different angles, but yeesh.
