Mr. Big takes a perp walk (WP)

If you haven’t had time to read up on Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s arrest, consider Eugene Robinson’s useful appropriation of everybody else’s reporting in his “column” yesterday (May 17). If you want analysis, try here, or consider any other newspaper.

Robinson, a once-promising journalist sent abroad to South America and London, proved with his posting to plum posts that in his years at a newsroom desk job he had honed his workplace politics.

That the Washington Post passes off Robinson’s regurgitation of every newspaper and newswire’s reporting, plus his puerile insight that DSK is — wait for it — a “dinosaur,” is the admission of the prehistoric status of the newspaper and its tired old pundits, who have nothing new whatsoever to add.
