In a post titled "Arthur Sulzberger Needs YOU!," Charles Murray takes his distaste over his payment from the New York Times to the AEI blog.
To all my fellow ink-stained wretches, a heads up. I got my check from the New York Times for an op ed that was published a few weeks ago. It was for $75. Not that anyone has ever paid the mortgage by writing op eds, but $75 for 800 words written for The Greatest Newspaper In the World is… how shall I put this? Weird. Do you suppose the red ink has really gotten that bad?
Yes. It's true--not good at all. But what's weird, actually, is posting something for the New York Times complaint department on the AEI blog.
