Earnest reporting or catty criticism? Fareed Zakaria, according to the Times, is on the short list of Lynda Resnick’s dinner parties, along with “Queen Noor of Jordan, George Soros, the financier, and Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California.”

Is the Times’ Christine Haughney critiquing Zakaria or not? Resnick is well known for being a marketing personality, one that makes broad, unsubstantiated health claims about “POM,” her silly juice that you should not waste your money on. Nor should you ever buy anything from her former business, the Franklin Mint, or Fiji, her overpriced water (see a theme here?).

Is a Resnick endorsement a thumbs up or down?

      I didn’t say that POM was disgusting, only that it was marketed in a deceptive way by someone who sounds like a social-climbing charlatan.
