If you don't want to click through: Olivia Giovetti of WQXR posted about the Ring; Gelb called WXQR, which took down the posting and now says it was under review already. Dan Wakin is on the case; read Olivia's posting here.
Good move, WQXR, during a pledge drive! And color this the problems of institutional blogging, from Dan's article:
Ms. Walker [of WQXR], without stating what her specific objections to the piece were, said it was not a review and “not exactly opinion either,” and after it quoted from the Times interview, “goes on without any substantiation or reporting.”Ms. Walker, that's what blogging is about.
H/T La Cieca for bringing this to everybody's attention.
