To The Editors,
To think that the New York Post does not even attempt to be an actual newspaper any longer should be shocking, but it’s par for the course. Tuesday’s amateurish cover and accompanying article were far more bush league than anything the Phillies could ever do. The job of a newspaper is to report, not to stand from afar and resort to petty, juvenile name calling – but then again, isn’t that the mode of operation of anything owned by Rupert Murdoch?
Tuesday’s edition was an insult to Kevin Kernan, Joel Sherman, and other baseball reporters on your staff who try to be, dare I say, actual journalists. The cover was an insult to the Phillies, to sports, to women, and even to Yankees fans; the most intelligent of them realize that sports is a battle of athleticism and wills, not a reason for false pride.
The New York Post has really outdone itself this time. You’re already a laughingstock at places such as WFAN and in the Phillies clubhouse. And now, you’re even more of a rag in this house.
Since you’re so fond of calling names, allow me this: The Post is a piece of crap.
Never again will I waste a penny of my money on your truly awful, embarrassing newspaper.
