So, the New York Times is so bad off, that they have no choice but to borrow money from a loan shark? This Carlos Slim guy is charging them 14% interest. All i have to say to that is...wow.

the 14% figure clearly justifies the "loanshark" label. on behalf of the ny times, that is just pathetic. however, the point of the article was about how bad off the new york times is. they have lost all credibility, and are now truly suffering due to it.

...dipsh*t.

You should have said double dipshit. He raised a dipshit and all you did was call his dipshit instead of raising another dipshit.

Also, taking his dipshit and raising it to a "take your dipshit, fry it in a light batter, and shove it up your corn hole" would have been acceptable.
