    The Paper of Record-ing 

    This is almost enough to get a guy to change his position on the First Amendment.

    The New York Times posted a piece on March 20 about the Rahman-Toney fight called “Heavyweight Division Is Still Searching for a Star”. In it is the following quote:

    “The promoter Don King, who did not have any sanctioned involvement in this fight, was asked what he thought the fight did for the division.King whisked past the reporter who asked the question, then turned his head, widened his eyes and said, ‘Nothing.’”

    That unnamed reporter, whom King turned around to answer, unlike, apparently, the print guy, was me. You can also hear a recording of this repartee on this week’s forthcoming edition of SecondsOut Radio.

    Now, I suppose usage of this quote is OK since it was done in the open at a press conference with other members of the media present. I don’t have a real problem with that.

    What I do want to know is why the hell we even need these print fossils anymore when the meatiest and most salient questions are being asked by us Internet journalists?
