Not a Hoax

My last post dealt with the White House's "little-noticed" tinkering with an executive order affecting federal regulation, part of its ongoing campaign to make real regulators quit their jobs so they can be replaced with rejected first-round American Idol contestants.

Though the order was amended a while ago - January 18 - the scheme was indeed "little-noticed" when I blogged about it yesterday. Today, however, it is on the front page of the New York Times. One small step for the Times, one giant leap for Proxyland. Or maybe it's the other way around.
