...printed this picture with an article in its business section, "Despite Exposure of Madoff Fraud, New Ponzi Schemes Emerge." The caption read: Scott W. Rothstein, a lawyer in Fort
Lauderdale, Fla., was accused in 2009 of defrauding investors of up to
$400 million in a Ponzi scheme.
Now, you might ask yourself, "Was it a cheap shot for the Times to print a photo of Mr. Rothstein that made look like such a . . . character?"
Maybe. But would you have felt better about this picture?
How about this one?
Okay, okay; never mind. Maybe a picture is worth a thousand words.
