This thing we all look at is terrible. Why do we look at it?

Alex Pareene, quite laudably,  blows up the NYT Editoiral page here.

The real problem, though, is that the NYT Editorial page is a thing that matters regardless of who writes it.We have the capacity to communicate with an entire universe of smart people who have subject authority and are ready to offer opinions.  It's a failure of our for-profit system of media that we're still directed to this particular corral in spite of it all.
