Few newspapers have been able to successfully navigate the rapidly changing media landscape as well as the New York Times. It has seemingly pulled off a pay-wall scheme, regularly engages its audience with interactive online features and continues to write relevant stories. The New York Times is pretty good, maybe even the best newspaper this country has.
But the New York Post? The New York Post is the equivalent of an attention-staved younger sibling completely devoid of shame. If the Times is the last bastion of old school journalistic credibility, the Post is the exact opposite. The Post is all about sensationalism. Whether you're laughing at it or laughing with it is consistently open for interpretation.
I will openly admit the back-page of Wednesday's Post is pretty awesome, though.
The Chicago White Sox again found themselves in an early hole against the New York Yankees, but for the second straight day were able to mount a comeback. Kevin Youkilis' fifth inning grand slam proved to be the decisive blow, and now the South Siders will go for the sweep tonight at U.S. Cellular Field.
Get swept by the Royals, sweep the Yankees. Only in the bizarre underworld of Major League Baseball is such senselessness possible.
