"People Are Morons?" Speak For Yourself

Journalist Michael Wolff is the Dick Morris of media critics- no matter what he's talking or writing about, he's always, always wrong. Here, in an interview in which he both predicts "soon there will be no" Rupert Murdoch and that Murdoch could purchase the New York Times- he shares this little nugget:

Let me throw this out: I'm the best writer of nonfiction prose in America today. I may be the only writer of nonfiction who's even alive. Everybody else wants to adored by The New York Times—hell, they want to work for the Times (I guess there aren't too many other places for writers to work)—so they all sound like the Times. I'm from the old school that believes a writer's job is to break the form, or at least light a fire under it.
Oh, he "breaks the form," all right.
