So, we're pretty amused that the Gray Lady has opted not to cover the Mel Gibson incident for the scandal that it is. Instead, they ran with a long, heady think-piece about the anatomy of a scandal. It also just happens to contain lots of juicy rumors about the
drunken Nazi movie actor.
The real story here, they insist, is this: Scandals spread really, really fast these days. Especially because of this new gee-whiz thing called the Internet.
C'mon, Gray Lady, just admit: You're addicted to People.com's RSS feed, aren't you?
