If Andrew Ross Sorkin is the "Founder" of Dealb%k, then where's the About page?
The face of credulity in the media is Andrew Ross Sorkin, hardworking New York Times Wall Street reporter and sometime Wall Street shoeshine boy. You cannot question Sorkin's work ethic. You cannot question his deep connections on Wall Street. And personally, I don't even question his sincerity. I do not believe that Andrew Ross Sorkin is a nefarious, scheming, two-faced spy, sent to do the bidding of Wall Street bankers in the halls of the nation's most important news outlet. I just think he is so dangerously, moronically credulous that his writing constitutes a danger to the public.
What fun! So I went to Dealb%k, a "financial service" from the New York Times, which I never read, and saw the header:
What the heck is a FOUNDER? Silicon Valley's bubble-icious startups have Founders, not newspaper departments. And sites that are "founded" have About pages that explain what they are. So I go to what looks like the masthead for this "financial service":
But Andrew's not there. So I search the Times, and come up with this:
Andrew does rather seem to wear several hats. But the one I'm interested in is the "FOUNDER" hat. How is a "founder," or "founding editor" different from an editor? I suppose another way of asking that question is this: What does the "%" in "Dealb%k" stand for, in terms of Sorkin's business model?
NOTE  The fact is from 2006, and is not linked to from the Dealb%k home page. So I frankly don't know whether it's authorititative or not.
