Be careful of sweeping statements …

… Matthew Walther on Twitter: "Pick a good book published in the last decade and compare the review from the Spectator or the Guardian or Literary Review with whatever notice appeared (if one did; no guarantee) in the NYT or WaPo. The reviewers are in different universes." (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

The Guardian recently had a pretty lousy one of Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s latest book. The Times does seem to have succumbed to the predictability of much contemporary American journalism. The Pos still surprises occasionally.
