Washington Post Writer Responds to The New York Times

Recently, Jennifer Steinhauer of the Times wrote an article about covering the many restaurants around Capitol Hill that are serving crappy food. Apparently that was the last straw with Tim Carman of The Washington Post. Yesterday he wrote a sarcastic piece detailing how often the New York Times bashes Washington (read: a lot). Here’s a sample of Carman’s completely over-the-top tone:

Allow me to apply some ointment to our many probe marks and ask a small favor from the Gray Lady’s staff: Could you please stop rubbing our noses in our inferiority? We understand by now. You’re better than we are. Your fashion is better than ours, your art is better and, of course, your restaurants are better. Washingtonians will forever cower in the long shadow cast by Gotham, nervously picking our nails and hoping you will like us one day.

What Carman doesn’t seem to grasp is that the tongue-in-cheek approach is worthless when talking about this city. At one point Carman hypothetically asks, “Do you get tired of being right all the time?” and every New Yorker from Midtown to East New York would resoundingly answer “No.” Carman sarcastically saying how superior this city is when attacking the Times and Steinhauer’s piece doesn’t work because all we do is sit back and nod in agreement. There’s a reason New Yorkers act like it’s the best city in the world: because it is.

Grilled Cheese, Please! Steinhauer in NYT

NY Times bureau chief Jennifer Steinhauer explores the gooey world of LA grilled cheese sandwiches. She goes to a bunch of great places, she’s not afraid of fat, and she slips in a bit of self-revelation that we’ve certainly never seen in the NYT before:
