Producer Scott Rudin has been using quotes from user reviews carried by the New York Times website and attributing them to the New York Times itself.This has understandably caused the NYT to get very huffy but Rudin makes some good points by way of riposte which do make you think the NYT rather wants to have its cake and eat it too – . Check out this account (
incredibly, in the NYT itself) in the New York Post of the mud-flinging.
Marvellous stuff. Thanks to Mark Shenton for the spotting it.
