NY Post (Of Course) Attacks Huma Abedin

Sigh. We were waiting for The New York Post to call out Anthony Weiner for repeatedly acting like a complete ass (dick?), but alas, that wait continues. Instead of attacking Weiner — the person who, you know, keeps f*cking up — the Post is taking issue with Huma Abedin because… Well, why not? She is a woman, after all. She can’t be blameless.

The accompanying article does take Weiner to task a little bit, but it saves plenty of venom for Abedin, who — again — isn’t the one who f*cked up. But no matter. The paper is on to her wily ways:

New York Media Wants Weiner to Pull Out

The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Daily News have all had enough with Anthony Weiner and his weiner. After Weiner admitted to sending more sexts, each paper ran pieces asking him to please, just go away.

The Times was plain in its request:

At some point, the full story of Anthony Weiner and his sexual relationships and texting habits will finally be told. In the meantime, the serially evasive Mr. Weiner should take his marital troubles and personal compulsions out of the public eye, away from cameras, off the Web and out of the race for mayor of New York City.

The Journal rightfully pointed out that Weiner is more than slightly out of his mind:

Liam Gallagher Sues The New York Post

Liam Gallagher — one of the men responsible for songs like “Champagne Supernova” and “Wonderwall” — is suing the New York Post. Yesterday, the paper ran a piece claiming that Gallagher was being sued by a journalist for fathering her child. Though the woman is unnamed, some are speculating that it’s Liza Ghorbani, who once wrote a piece fittingly titled “A Night Out With Liam Gallagher” for The New York Times.

The Post says that the woman is seeking $3 million from the former Oasis frontman. The Guardian reports that Gallagher, in turn, is countersuing the Post for making the allegations. Perhaps you could argue that Gallagher being sued — even if it’s for something he didn’t do — is proper punishment for unleashing Oasis’ music upon the masses, but we won’t go that far.

If the Post’s allegations are true, Gallagher is going to have a tough time explaining this to his wife and three children. Hopefully he doesn’t start with “And all the roads we have to walk are winding. And all the lights that lead us there are blinding. There are many things that I would like to say to you, but I don’t know how.” We don’t imagine that going over too well.

Daily News and NY Post Put James Gandolfini’s ‘Last’ Photo on Cover

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For their covers today, the New York Daily News and the New York Post both went with what they’re claiming is the last photograph of James Gandolfini while he was still alive.

The Post — being the Post — went above and beyond and listed what Gandolfini ate and drank for his meal. The actor “downed two orders of fried king prawns, a heaping helping of foie gras, four shots of rum, two pina coladas and two beers.” Nice and sensational. Good stuff.

NY Post to Name David Seifman Political Editor

The New York Post is expected to promote David Seifman to political editor soon, according to Capital New York.

Seifman has been covering city hall for the Post since 1982, and has been city hall bureau chief since 1989.

No word yet on who will fill the big shoes vacated by Seifman.

New York Post ‘Bag Men’ Suing Paper

Salaheddin Barhoum and Yassine Zaimi — the two people The New York Post stupidly labeled “Bag Men” and wrongly suspected Boston Marathon bombing suspects — are suing the newspaper for libel. We figured it was only a matter of time, considering shortly after the incident, Barhoum’s father lawyered up.

According to The Boston Globe, the court filing against the tabloid explains, “The front page would lead a reasonable reader to believe that plaintiffs had bombs in their bags, that they were involved in causing the Boston Marathon bombing,” which then subjected Barhoum and Zaimi to “scorn, hatred, ridicule, or contempt in the minds of a considerable and respectable segment of the community.”

The pair are accusing the Post of libel, but also “negligent infliction of emotional distress,” and invasion of privacy.

Barhoum and Zaimi seek damages and an unknown monetary compensation. We hope they’re asking for a lot and they get every penny.

Battle of The Weiner Headline: Post or Daily News

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The timing of Anthony Weiner’s announcement that he was running for mayor might have prevented the New York Post and New York Daily News from punning the hell out of the city yesterday, but today the paper’s did their best to bring it. The only question is which Weiner headline is better?

We do like “spanks” better than “beats,” but FishbowlNY gives the win to the Post because it added “…Then goes limp.” Two puns in six words is strong work.

Daily News and Post Use Same Photo for Oklahoma Tornado Covers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The New York Daily News and The New York Post both used the same photo to illustrate the devastation left by the tornado that hit Oklahoma yesterday. Ironically, though the captured moment is extremely sad, the woman carrying the child conveys hope.

If you’re wondering how you can help the tornado victims, here’s a nice roundup.

The Post and Daily News Want You to Know That OJ is Fat Now

OJ Simpson is back in court this week and well, the man has put on a few pounds. As long as you mention this at least once today or tomorrow in a conversation, the New York Post and New York Daily News have done their jobs.

You can try a simple ”Man, OJ is huge!” Or if you’re feeling up to it, the more complex “OJ? More like ‘OK that’s enough cupcakes,’ am I right?” Either one should suffice.

Father of NY Post ‘Bag Men’ Hiring Lawyer

When The New York Post idiotically plastered a photograph of El Houssein Barhoum’s son on its cover, labeling him and another man as “Bag Men,” Barhoum was outraged. His anger was understandable, because his son was being threatened and treated like the Boston Marathon bomber, all because of the Post’s reckless speculation. Now Barhoum has had enough. He is hiring a lawyer.

According to the Washington Post, Barhoum said his son only sleeps one or two hours a night now, and that he sometimes “refuses to go to school.” So Barhoum is seeking legal counsel, because “A lot of people, they tell me that’s your right to sue them.”

While suing the Post might prove to be difficult, we’re 100 percent behind Barhoum. We’re pulling for an out of court settlement that scores hims and his family millions. They do have one thing in their favor: News Corp. owned papers are fairly familiar with being taken to court. So at the very least, the Post should know the drill.
