Newspaper industry: We’re smart and sexy! Look at us!
We love newspapers. We think they’re awesome. We have a subscription to The New York Times. We base much of our coverage around newspaper content. But for the love of God, we would like to submit that “Smart is the New Sexy" does it completely freaking wrong.
