As Season Approaches, Some Topics Should Be Off Limits

New York Times

I can’t believe that once or twice I’ve actually defended Murray Chass. I started reading this story in the paper and nodded off before I got to the Bernie Williams rant of obviousness, thereby missing the explosive display of no-nothingism spewed about sabermetric investigation at the end. Such willful ignorance on the part of a reporter (though Seth Mnookin has ably disputed the validity of that label as regards Chass) should be grounds for dismissal.

Unless he’s just trying to be funny, in which case someone should hit the big gong.
