january 30, 2003  09:32 am
John Powers calls Tim Rutten's coverage of the federal antitrust investigation of Village Voice Media and New Times a host of bad words, including "maladroit," "inflammatory," and "bumbling." He is delighted that Rutten was scooped on what he had considered his own story by David Carr of The New York Times. Then, in the unkindest cut of all, Powers concludes, "I actually found myself feeling sorry for the poor bastard."
