New York Times Coverage of Strike

You'd think The New York Times would be a tad more pro-union than this article on our strike makes them out to be. What happened to the liberal media bias we all know and love??? Kidding! No worries, we still love the Times. And for these 3 reasons, exactly:

1) any press is good press,
2) the flattering undergrad quotes, and
3) the last line, which underscores the fact that many GAs in this country actually have legitimate labor rights.

Hmph, that's the last time I believe NYU when it tries to tell me that GAs aren't workers; it seems many (gasp!) actually are.

The new york times didn't acquire the Voice. It was a corporation called New Times, based in California.

Ack! How embarassing. Clearly, I need to be reading less Marx and more Gawker. Thanks for the correction--all fixed.
