I'm not listed here.” Anna North at BuzzFeed quoted the story: "The Carlos Danger Name for Anthony Weiner is Carlos Danger." Cardiff Garcia at the Financial Times called it, “Lots of fun.”

For more shop talking, read the Boston Globe column that explains: The sports columnist’s mission is to write, not to root. Meghan E. Irons there Boston Globe wrote, “Fantastic column by Shaughnessy. Tell the story. Your sports columnist is here to write, not to root.” Jake Heller at the Daily Beast tweeted from the story: "Are we supposed to suspend all rules of journalism because we cover sports?" Graham Couch with the Lansing State Journal added, “As Shaughnessy mentions, the internet has produced a new generation of fan media.”

In BuzzFeed, read How The Media Will Report The Apocalypse. Shreeya Sinha at the New York Times called it, “Pure gold.” Garret M. Ellison with the Grand Rapids Press said it’s “#awesome.” Hiawatha Bray at the Boston Globe said it’s the “Funniest #Buzzfeed ever.”  Matt Pearce at the LA Times had other thoughts: “I wonder if this project was BuzzFeed's award-bait?”
