The Hypocrisy of the New York Times

I have to submit an extra post today.

One of my favourite bloggers, noted an interesting hypocrisy coming out of the New York Times.

On September 22, 2006 the New York Times ran a scathing editorial on the use of extremely thin models in the fashion industry.

Astute Joe notes that the New York Times seems to have no issue allowing those same fashion companies to pay presumably a great deal of money to publish ads with those very same extremely thin models into the pages of their newspaper.
