Class War from the NY Times, Which Brought You Luxe Dog Houses and $9,500 Cruises to Japan

Posted on 24 April 2016

Class war returns to the front page of the Sunday New York Times, with business reporter Nelson Schwartz’s long jeremiad against special cruise ship packages which surely represent a new Gilded Age, “In New Age of Privilege, Not All Are in Same Boat." On the list of lamentables was a special $10,000 cruise option "hidden" on a ship offering less expensive choices. Yet for a paper which seethes at such Dickensian injustice, it doesn’t have a problem with sponsoring cruises to Japan that cost a minimum of $9,595. The paper has a history ofhypocrisy in slamming rich people while also avidly catering to its rich liberal readership.
