Media Criticism, Homer Simpson-Style

Reading this at the bottom of neo-con William Kristol‘s column in the New York Times (1/26/09):

This is William Kristol’s last column.

Homer says, “Woohoo!”

Then reading this at the Politico:

EXCLUSIVE: Progressives will delight when they get to the italic note at the end of Bill Kristol’s column in the Times today say, “This is William Kristol’s last column.” His one-year contract was up. Sources tell Playbook that he’s now beginning a monthly column in the Washington Post.

Homer says, “D’oh!”
