One of the patients on this episode of NY Med is the chief copy editor of the New York Post. He got struck by a hit-and-run driver and being a newspaperman, of course, he looks over the next day’s edition — brought to him by his deputy — despite being hospitalized with a laceration in his head.
Who says print is dead?

Say What Now of the Day: In his Equal Time column today, the New York Post‘s Phil Mushnick goes straight racist on the Nets’ new logo as the team transitions from New Jersey to Brooklyn (with a little influence from Jay-Z, who owns 1.5 percent of the team):

As long as the Nets are allowing Jay-Z to call their marketing shots — what a shock that he chose black and white as the new team colors to stress, as the Nets explained, their new “urban” home — why not have him apply the full Jay-Z treatment?
Why the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York N——s? The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn B—-hes or Hoes. Team logo? A 9 mm with hollow-tip shell casings strewn beneath. Wanna be Jay-Z hip? Then go all the way!

As Jack Kogod (@Unsilent) posted on Twitter: “Looking forward to not reading Phil Mushnick’s independent blog.”

Employees of The New York Post, Rupert Murdoch’s irreverent and hard-charging city tabloid, were told Friday to keep any documents that may pertain to the kind of illegal activity that has led to arrests and a widening investigation at the News Corporation’s British newspapers.

An e-mail to Post journalists on Friday afternoon said News Corporation lawyers had ordered them not to discard anything that relates to any unauthorized access of personal data or payments to government officials.

The directive was the clearest sign yet that the company’s lawyers believe the scope of two early-stage investigations in the United States — one into whether journalists working for the company sought access to phone records of 9/11 victims and another into whether payments to the British police by News Corporation employees violated American law — could broaden.

News Corporation officials did not comment on the matter. But the notice raised the possibility that the firm either has received a subpoena for such documents, or has been notified by prosecutors that a subpoena is coming, legal specialists said.

Should people who work at the New York Post do up front pages like this, even if they are “journalists”?

I’m sure that particular newspaper delivery truck was parked in front of that particular newspaper’s building for a good reason, but still… heh.

“Any news organization can gather news, but (Rupert) Murdoch knows how to make it a sustainable crop. You see, he plants the news in the Wall Street Journal, he fertilizes it in the New York Post, and he harvests it on Fox News.”

STEPHEN COLBERT, brilliantly dissecting how Murdoch’s news organizations manufactured a non-news story on SCOTUS nominee Elena Kagan’s sexuality by running a photo of her playing softball, on The Colbert Report.

I’ll say it again: this is why one person scumbag shouldn’t be allowed to own more than one media outlet.
