Morning Links: Times Public Editor is Team Rachael and Gwyneth

Arthur Brisbane sided with Gwyneth Paltrow and Rachael Ray in the disagreement over the Julia Moskin’s “I Was a Cookbook Ghostwriter” story, concluding it was “misleading.” Look at how worked up he got:

I do know who Rachael Ray is because I’ve seen her on TV and on the covers of some of her 18 books. What always struck me about her was her overwhelmingly buoyant personality, always on display as she whips things up in her kitchen on the tube. The Rachael Ray who called me last week, though, was a very unhappy, annoyed Rachael Ray. The object of her upset: The New York Times. [NYT]
