Maureen didn't receive the memo.

Here's a couple of links that will illustrate why the no-longer-mainstream, corporate media are losing revenue, reporting declining audience numbers, and laying off employees.

Maureen Dowd, pictured above while catching up with her reading, witch hunts Sarah Palin in her Nov. 11, New York Times column, Boxers, Briefs or Silks? In a story in the Times' television section the following day, Richard Pérez-Peña illustrates how Ms. Dowd and several other journalists fell for a hoax planted by A Senior Fellow at the Institute of Nonexistence.

Maureen, the public editor for the Times, Clark Hoyt, should inspect your lingerie stash and all receipts to see if any of it was charged to the corporation or received by you gratuitously. Clark, think about all the fact checkers the paper could hire with the funds it's paying Maureen.

Julie, I assume that picture of Maureen Dowd is from 2005 or so when her second book, "Are Men Necessary? When Sexes Collide", was released. All the publications on her table are aimed at men. She appears to be mildly amused by the cheesecake photos in Maxim.

There's too much Photoshopping going on in Maxim. And the same graphic artists who enhance Oprah Winfrey's magazine covers every month may have worked their magic on Dowd. Image is everything. :)

Have a lovely weekend in Perth. DVC!
