…critics lost even in NYC

Slashing arts coverage even in NYC? It seems to be happening. Love the quote at the end from the Columbia J-School prof:


…On the international market, the only thing the U.S. is exporting in large measure is culture — that’s our primary export product — so coverage of it should be expanding, not shrinking, right?”

Our criticism shouldn’t be valued more when the cultural goods that do get exported are horrible anyway.
