WaTimes Disses Jenny 8. Lee

Each year, the Washington Times editorial page holds its “Nobles and Knaves” contest, “looking over the year at smart moves and stumbles profiled in our weekly editorial feature.”

One nominee:

    Jennifer 8. Lee, a New York Times reporter who wrote on her blog post that Washington’s nightlife was pathetic and that the Metro map has all the sophistication of Fisher Price. Apparently, she was upset by the mass-transit signs that say “Unlike some subway systems, you don’t see rats the size of house cats roaming the Metro,” cautioning riders not to eat on the Metro. She assumed egocentrically that the signs were a putdown to New York City, causing her to write the nasty criticisms.

(Who’s Jenny 8. Lee?)
