NY Times: Photographs Can Be Brutish

The NY Times has a number of reporters that are abandoning their NY lifestyles in favor of mud-huts to avoid any possible mistaking them for people of wealth or leisure.

Enlightened mud-hutter-to-be Sandra Boxer opines:
But more and more, there's a brutish flaunting of wealth and leisure.
Good. That may help get the message across.

So a photo of you posing by your car or pool is brutish now, is it? But photographs in paid advertising in the NY Times for luxury cars, condos, jewelry, fine dining establishments, Broadway Theatre, vacation spots in the Hamptons and the like, these are not brutish? It's OK to publish these?

What the hell do these hypocritical MSM nitwits want anyway?

Two brutes flaunting their lives of leisure.
