Today's dose of newsroom gossip
First off, after much anticipation you can now navigate the news with The Upshot, the new NYT site that just launched. "There should be at least one part of the New York Times dedicated to the readers' understanding," Jay Rosen wisely observed on that subject. And here it is: a helping of politics, policy, economics and everyday life from The New York Times.
Dishearteningly, as the trial of Al Jazeera journalists resumes in Egypt, a disturbing twitpic has emerged depicting "the man in court who opens the cages." At The Times, Clive Davis reacted, "Bizarre attire." We think that's putting it lightly, too.
On the lighter side of news, because we can't ever get enough of this: Brian Williams rapping "Gin and Juice." This could go on forever, and we're okay with that.
