    That’s a LOT of research and copy to refute a Page Six story. Isn’t Page Six only a gossip column??

    It took me 30 minutes…. which is one of the reasons I have no tolerance of unresearched stories.
    And when something like this comes up in Page Six, commenting on a trade story, the effort s to make an impact. So I take it seriously.

    That was… really good! It was interesting, indeed.

    The New York Post could always hire a 10year old intern who knows how to use google to fact-check their stories. Or outsource the fact-checking to India.
    I’d talk to Lachlan about it, but he quit and went back home to Australia (you know kids like Lachlan, they get tired of playing with even the most expensive toys their given after awhile).
    But hey, facts getting in the way of a good story don’t reflect on Newscorp being ‘fair and balanced.’ No, wait, it does.

    Oh Page Six. Makes reading the paper worthwhile. For the laughs.

“I wanted that feeling that you could live in a city your entire life and never meet anyone who wasn’t like you.”
Gillian Flynn

“We’re all going to die so it makes it very easy. I haven’t always thought that way but I’ve realized it’s the truth. I think age gets you there, questioning your mortality… When you realize that, it’s so liberating, it’s so free, you can fly! There’s no need to hold on to anything. Like, think of the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you; it’s probably happened to 500 million people as well. Who gives a shit!”
