Last week, the New York Times was the first to get to Eliot Spitzer’s Kristen, now they are reporting about a serious bedbug infestation at the Fox News newsroom in Midtown. An exterminator told a Fox employee who told the Times it’s “the worst infestation he had seen in 25 years in the business.”
Fox says the problem has been eradicated but only after exterminators visited the homes of 20 Fox employees and determined that one person was the carrier. Gawker is reporting that the offending employee has been fired.
Score two for the New York Times. How will the Post respond? And just wait until Rupert Murdoch pits the Wall Street Journal head-to-head versus the New York Times in New York City news, then things should get really interesting.
