On a morning where the big story of the day should be the Yankees coming within one win of yet another World Series appearance the New York Post decided to run a front page story on former Mets general manager Steve Phillips. Phillips, apparently, had an affair with an intern that didn’t go quite as planned. Where have I heard that before?
Anyway, I have to question why anybody in the world cares about this story and why it’s considered front page news. I can understand if you’re a 24-hour news television station and it’s a slow news day and you need to cover something. (I’m talking to you, CNN, and your silly coverage of the balloon boy story.) But should I care about this story?
