New York Times prints retraction after Maureen Dowd caught doctoring quotes from NYC mayoral race

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd was forced to publish a retraction on Wednesday after falsely attributing anti-gay remarks to the wife of New York City mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio. According to New York magazine, Dowd decontextualized a quote by de Blasio’s wife Chirlane McCray to read like an…

Mo Dowd demands that people like her stop telling the story she loves to tell about single women

Sometimes, when I joke about how weddings are a big deal because they constitute a woman’s inclusion into the human race after being sponsored in by a man, I think to myself, “Amanda, perhaps you’re engaging in hyperbole. For while it’s creepy that so many people obsess over weddings and…

Shorter Dowd: Who I want to do should dicate the leader of the free world

I didn’t see this yesterday, and for which I feel a mixture of regret and gladness that I had one day more on earth without knowing that Maureen Dowd prefers to masturbate while thinking of douchebagy frat boy types over the sexy nerds. Not that I judge her preference, of…

This Vanity Fair profile of Tina Fey is both intriguing and unbelievably irritating, because Maureen Dowd wrote it. Dowd is more than a little obsessed with Fey’s looks (though it’s depressing but interesting that Fey had to lose 30 pounds and learn to ape the sexy librarian look before she…

Maureen Dowd’s Gears Are Clicking

“Why, that Obama won’t let us make fun of him at all! He’s such an uptight, controlled, anal, humorless sacred cow…” “Oh my God, I think I’m on to something! And I finally get to use the word ‘aeolist’!”…

I don’t just hate ladies, but men who I think act like ladies

I just brought myself to read the public editor Clark Hoyt’s article about sexism and the Clinton campaign in the NY Times. I was pleasantly relieved to see that he singles out Maureen Dowd, fairly, as the most egregious offender. Even better, he just lets her nonsensical defenses of her…

A Contest!

Twenty dollars to the first person who can give any rational reason why Michelle Obama is mentioned in Maureen Dowd’s latest piece. This isn’t even the failure to write something relevant (the entire article is basically a laundry list of Weird Things The French President’s Wife Did), but Maureen Dowd’s…
