NY Times poorly thought-out banner ad 

Today while perusing Slate, I noticed an unusual banner ad; the first frame says "The Moon Landing was Faked. There was once life on mars. The Raelians cloned a baby. "

The Second Frame in large letters says "Who can you trust?" The third: "New York Times: 50% off!"

I understand that this is probably supposed to be "hip". But for a newspaper under almost constant attack for its perceived liberal bias, why would they choose an add that makes it sound as if, like the "Weekly World News" once was, the paper is designed to appeal to deluded nuts?

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
