A Merry Media Christmas

Intrepid AT contributor Jack Kemp (not the politican) took to the streets of midtown Manhattan, camera in hand, to survey the season's decorations at major media outlets. To put it mildly, restraint seems to be the order of the day. Unsurprisingly, the New York Times is the Grinch of the crowd, with no externally visible ornamentation on its brand new state-of-the-art headquarters building. (Note: all individuals' faces are covered)
