Shaker SapphireCate emailed me a heads-up that the New York Times' public editor, Clark Hoyt, has addressed the recent fat hatred-laden Cintra Wilson piece we discussed here.

Suffice it to say that if the Times really wants its readers to believe that they don't endorse naked bigtory against fatties, perhaps the public editor's response could have avoided a fat joke in the goddamn title.

"The Insult Was Extra Large"? Fuck off.
