Media: Taibbi on Valerie Bertinelli, uh, Thomas Friedman

In the New York Press, political writer Matt Taibbi challenges NYTimes columnist Thomas Friedman as jumping on the bandwagon for the “green” movement. Wait for the graphs, where he applies Friedman’s methodology to Valerie Bertinelli’s physique.

The best: “This is Friedman’s life: He flies around the world, eats pricey lunches with other rich people and draws conclusions about the future of humanity by looking out his hotel window and counting the Applebee’s signs.” (From NY Press).
