Shafer has no problem with bullying Gannett

Slate magazine press critic Jack Shafer rips New York Times ombudsman Arthur Brisbane, who tut-tutted his paper's recent coverage of Gannett's executive pay package, plus other media news.

"Give me the bully treatment any day -- even though I don't think any of the pieces cited by Brisbane comes remotely close to bullying,'' Shafer writes. "Nobody deserves the lash more than publishers, editors, reporters, press critics, and public editors."

Please keep your posts focused on Gannett and media-related subjects. Note that I occasionally review comments in advance, to reject inappropriate ones. And I ignore hostile posters, and recommend you do, too."
