Accuracy in Media

WASHINGTON, January 22, 2009—Boycott The New York Times editor Don Feder called New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd “The Queen of Liberal Mean” and noted the hypocrisy of Dowd “whining about how Republican fiscal policies devastate the poor” while she spends an extended weekend at Miami’s posh Canyon Ranch “getting massages and detoxifying body-wraps, while quaffing martinis,” all courtesy of her expense account.

“How does lefty, feel-your-pain Dowd justify such extravagance? That’s easy. She told readers she was there to find out if the rich were experiencing ‘spa-guilt’ during a recession,” noted Feder.

Feder pointed out that Dowd’s column was published “within days of The Times ordering its newsroom staff to hold the line on expenses (individual lunches not to exceed $50 and no seeking reimbursement for ‘entertaining’ co-workers).”

The Times weeps for the underclass and demands more spending to alleviate their plight, while sending its staff writers to spas that cater to movie stars and trust-fund babies. Can’t wait to see The Times’ editorial on the need for a federal program to provide the homeless with massages and body-wraps,” Feder wrote.

The New York Times is the citadel of liberal hypocrisy and Dowd is the chatelaine,” concludes Feder.
