Techdirt Podcast Episode 223: Bedbugs & Beyond, With David Karpf
from the what-a-week dept
By now, you likely all know the story of David Karpf’s mild “bedbugs” joke that drew the personal, professional and journalistic ire of the New York Times’ Bret Stephens. As it turned out, Karpf — a professor with expertise in media and political communication — was more than capable of responding to Stephens and talking about what was happening in a variety of media outlets, with far more insight than the Pulitzer-winning columnist himself, turning what started as a very silly incident into an exploration of very serious topics. So this week, David Karpf joins us on the podcast to talk about his experience, and what we can all learn from it.
