The Municipal Art Society (MAS) invited the press to an event Wednesday morning in which they would be able to take a look at four renderings of the new Madison Square Garden. They’re just ideas at the moment since the actual building of the facility is more than 15 years away, but still. If you’re into this, like the architecture and design press who were invited to the event would be, this is pretty exciting stuff.
Except the MAS had already given the story and the images to The New York Times the night before.
Journalists working for smaller outlets are used to playing second fiddle to top-tier outlets. But really, don’t rub salt in the wound by pulling this kind of stunt. Especially when those other journalists can wound you and do a little salt rubbing in return.
