The New York Times, as usual, buries the lede on Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

It set out to write a painfully self-torturous article on how Hurricane Sandy reveals class divisions, yadda yadda – and in the process the author wrote this:

Moments later, a white woman leaned down to address his daughter. “Have you eaten in two days?” she asked.

Mr. Ossy surged with outrage. Power was out, yes, and nights were cold for sure, but Mr. Ossy, a taxi driver proud of the long days he works to earn money for his family, was insulted by the suggestion that his daughter was not well cared for.

The New York Times decided to title the article “Helping Hands Also Expose a New York Divide.”  I suggest that next time it instead try this headline:


But that’s just me.  The Hell, Bloomberg.

  1. Don’t look down on Bloomberg, Moe. He’s not letting this crisis go to waste! I’m sure he’s hearing bids on lovely new eco-friendly green power distribution systems or something…

  2. Horrible article…near the end someone basically says they don’t want help from rich whites. Makes me sad for the future.

  3. This has been going on for so long that even Bush references aren’t funny. So much for the hope that the media would become curious after election.
