Newspaper Promotes Self in Obit
The New York Post, a newpaper economical in its fairness and devotion to nuance, recently gave itself a strange bit of promotion in an obituary.
The tone is perhaps expected from a newspaper that upon the death in December of blues and rock innovator Ike Turner used the headline: IKE "BEATS" TINA TO DEATH. This was a reference to the generally acknowledged fact that Turner's reputation was overshadowed by his former wife Tina's allegations of spousal abuse.
