London vs the NYT

NYT headline:

"For a Decade, London Thrived as a Busy Crossroads of Terror"

You know, that is a really stupid headline. I think it's pretty difficult to make the argument that London is a 'crossroads of terror', anymore than one can say the same about NYT because of 9/11.

It's not only offensive, it's...idiotic and completely out of touch with everything that's great about London. One only needs to read a few London bloggers on the blasts to understand why.

A nice example of why open source media is far more potent than silly, sensationalist (and very obsolete) mass media. I'm constantly surprised by just how much the NYT doesn't get it.
