Malkin is reporting that the NY Slimes is standing on the precipice of junk-bond territory:
Moody’s Investors Service said on Thursday it may cut its ratings on New York Times Co into junk territory, citing concerns about continuing revenue declines and risks associated with refinancing its debt.
Moody’s said it may cut the New York Times from “Baa3,” the lowest investment grade. Downgrades into junk territory can significantly increase a company’s borrowing costs.
To borrow a phrase from the Rev’r'nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd Jackass-i-miah Wrong – looks like Pinch’s chickens have come home to roost.

The Department of Instant Karma’s Gonna Get You has been pulling yeoman’s duty these last few weeks – and soon as this is all over, I’m putting them in for some much-needed shore leave.
DEPT OF IKGGY: YAY!!!!!!
Anyway, they bring us this:
Item: When the Sarahcuda’s personal email was hacked, several (and I mean several) screenshots thereof made their way over here. (I don’t want to give these fuckwits the linkage, but I can’t find anyone else pointing to them, so…) They were not, and are not, terribly apologetic about any of it.
Item: G’AWK-AWK-AWK-ER has apparently run into a small spat of…er…financial difficuty, even though they claim that advertising…
is up 30% over a year ago.
You can guess the reason for these brutal measures: the recession.
Right. That would be the one that hasn’t happened yet, but that you dumb shits keep harbingering (harbingering?) about.
Ever hear of “self-fulfilling prophecies”, dumbass?
OTOH, it couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of pussies.

And now for something completely different…a bit of good news.
(Oh, by the way – it turns out he’s the pwecious widdle babyyyyy of a Tennessee Democrat state rep. Imagine my surprise.)
More on this as things develop. In the meantime…

Great Honkin’ Cthulu, you people do. Not. Know!!!! how badly I was hoping this would happen.
Background: About a month ago, there was a brouhaha of Olympic-sized proportions when he got his
probably illegal or anchor-baby ugly ass kicked off the US Olympic boxing team for leaving training camp.
The excuse? Oh, boo hoo hooooooo, his widdle sister was in rehab and ¡¡¡ELLA LO NECESITADA POR SU LADO, MALDITA SEA!!! (translation: NEEDED HIM BY HER SIDE, DAMMIT!!!)
He begged to come back. Pleaded. Cajoled. The US Olympic Committee, for once in it’s miserable existence, stood firm.
So the little prick-ito did what any little Messican boy of his stripe nowadays would do: He hired a couple of
ambulance-chasers attorneys, implying that he might sue.
Well, it was apparently enough for the spine of the USOC to suddenly change back into linguini, as they subsequently reinstated the punk.
All the Olympic-sized soap opera one could ever hope for – which, today, proved to be all for naught, as Yanez just got finished having his gangsta ass handed to him.
Shawn Estrada and Luis Yanez both lost their second-round bouts Saturday, leaving only two American boxers in the Olympic tournament.
Estrada was handed an 11-5 loss by James Degale of Britain in the middleweight division and Yanez suffered an 8-7 setback against Serdamba Purevdorj of Mongolia.
Justice. Buford…T…Justice. There is a God.
