  • The Times is tabloid trash. More concerned with publishing click bait rubbish than actual news. And accuracy and neutrality? Who cares, it’s all about the clicks.

  • And who refers to Slipped Disk as anything but “Lebrecht”? It does stand for accuracy and neutrality, which is why people regard it as the blog of record.

    • Oh goodness, nobody except elderly classical music fans who have managed to learn how to use the internet regard this outlet with anything other than mocking disdain

  • Pretty soon we are going to start seeing items from the author’s local neighborhood grocery circular that arouse his ire.

  • Of all the transgressions to journalism and truth that the once great NY Times has been guilty of, this is all that draws the attention of Lebrecht? I confess that all I know about Beyonce is her name.
