Overkill on the Profanity Desk

Dear NYT,

What the fuck are you doing?

The Gray Lady devotes 1,200 words and four reporters today to covering in mind-numbing detail the fact that a television anchor inadvertently said the word "fuck" live on air. (Of course, being the NYT, it can’t actually print the word, which makes the whole story even sillier.)

How do I know about this story? Well, it’s on the business home page, for starters – and in the NYT Business RSS feed. I do understand that New York is a media town. Even so, somebody’s news judgment is way out of whack here.
