Culture on the Cheap
From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part III: Deja Vu
Eryana writes (in an email entitled “Bayard Balcony”):
was covered on Fox News…just now made the front page of Yahoo! News no less.as far as i know you were the first to cover this, correct? nice to see there are some fans of your blog @ Fox News, and that you’re doing their work for them.
Indeed. I take it was a slow news day, Rupert?
UPDATE, December 21, 2010 7:57 p.m.: it would appear Fox News’s video is quite popular.
224,629 319,610 539,111 page views and counting. Impressive. Where’s my cut of the revenue you undoubtedly gained as a result of this, my work, Fox News? Yahoo? Anyone?
P.S.: I can only hope Suzi Halpin is trotted out (once again) to explain this gaffe. E.g.;
The New York Post credits blogs, bloggers, and other media all the time, as our readers know.
