Call this “Who’s riding my coat-tails now?”
Gretchen Woods, a caller to Weekend Edition Sunday last week, whined (with what sounded like good cause) about some story she’d heard. So far so good. Sounds like she and I would get along just fine.
But my ears pricked up when she suggested that the unsatisfactory piece was a “window moment,” as in making her want to throw her radio out of her car window.
Not bad, lady, but I did it first, I did it better, and, most important, I did it bloggier.
If you’re so fired up about criticizing NPR with labored but apt plays on words I invite you to become a co-contributor here.
