I'll defer to your obviously inside knowledge...but Iwas just reiterating the generally held view that Nachman kept the Post together during the Kalikow fiasco....

What kept the Post together was the newsroom's willingness to take pay cut after pay cut, while Tubby toddled home with a salary reputed to be in the $400,000 range (plus donuts).

The most infamous incident during his reign was when a black reporterette complained that a copy editor was "racist" for refering to Harry Belafonte as a "Calypso King." Rather that anlienate one of the paper's few black reporters (of the professionally aggrieved, I'm-calling-Sharpton variety), he disciplined the editor -- even though he must have known the charge was ludicrous.

Expect more of the same at MSNBC -- with healthy doses of Tubby's jowls wobbling in egomaniacal delight as he squeezes his gross bulk between camera and viewer at every opportunity.
