Rachel Donadio, recumbent on her "perfect couch
," puts down her Proust and picks up a copy of McSweeney's. Here's the link
. Now here are some highlights: "Mr. Eggers said, answering readers’ questions on the McSweeney’s website", "Mr. Eggers told The New Yorker in a interview published on its website last month" , "On Amazon UK, Picador is still listed as publishing the forthcoming novel", "Mr. Eggers said on his Web site", "Mr. Eggers said, answering readers’ questions on his website", and "Michael Cader," who may or may not be related
to the Sun bagman sharing the surname
. Ms. Donadio's own Internet Tendency, we see, is quite formidable.
But the Sun
, as Seth Lipsky tells us, is all about priority coverage of the city. Satisfying that metric, Ms. Donadio placed the requisite call to an area Barns & Noble. Oh, and she noted that Dave Eggers makes "girls with glasses" swoon out in Carroll Gardens. One wonders where she lives.
It should come as little surprise that Seth Lipsky and Ira Stoll are running Lummox Taranto's "Best of the Web Today" [sic] feature in their newspaper [sic]. After all, Taranto rides his anti-Muslim hobby horse with as much vigor as Ira Stoll rides his racist stereotype that doesn't hold up to prolonged scrutiny hobby horse
. However, one can only flog said hobby horse so much, and enthusiasm shades into something else rather quickly. Sources that Taranto and his fellow constituents of the Internet hive mind are furiously trying to discredit are plain-spoken about what that something else is
. As if the New York Sun
needed further discrediting.
