Calling Batman

All the News That Fits

“The executive editor of The New York Times, Dean Baquet, poked fun Sunday at The Washington Post's new slogan.

“‘I love our competition with the Washington Post. I think it’s great. But I think their slogan — Marty Baron please forgive me for saying this — sounds like the next Batman movie,’ he said Sunday.

“The Washington Post, helmed by Marty Baron, earlier this year introduced a new slogan: ‘Democracy Dies in Darkness.’”

—Rebecca Savransky, reporter, “NYT leader: Washington Post slogan ‘sounds like the next Batman movie,’” The Hill, March 12, 2017
