The Economist: spit-shining the NY news


Here's the headline of the week, from the Economist:

Spitzer swallows?

HIS pride, at any rate: New York Governor Eliot Spitzer has been caught on tape arranging a rendezvous with a high-class prostitute. Mr Spitzer today issued an apology to his family and staff, saying he was "disappointed that I failed to live up to the standard I expected of myself". Those with a taste for irony can read the then–attorney general waxing indignant in the wake of a 2004 prostitution bust here.

Global empathy for the wife and three teenage daughters, who may be a tad po'd about the $80,000 blown on callgirls by Dad.

I prefer the NY Post for tabloid brevity and talkin to the folks in the hood:

"Ho No!!"
