Longman lay off the lady

Fox News

Paper feels backlash for hating on Lolo Jones:

Don’t knuckle-heads like Times sportswriter Jere Longman have an editor look over his material before it is published?

This is what Jere had to say about Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones.

“Jones has received far greater publicity than any other American track and field athlete competing in the London Games,” Longman wrote. “This was based not on achievement, but on her exotic beauty and on a sad and cynical marketing campaign. Essentially, Jones has decided she will be whatever anyone wants her to be — vixen, virgin, victim — to draw attention to herself and the many products she endorses.”

I think it would have been much more appropriate  if the New York Times “key-board pounder” expounded on the lady’s beauty as well as her athletic achievements on the field instead of trying to put the lady down.

It is a shame that there are always parasites trying to make a name for them-self at someone else’s expense. Essentially Jere Longman the little man has decided he would do whatever it takes for him to come off as a writer, a worm and a wanna-be to try and draw attention to himself and come off like a seasoned journalist.
