Q: Who will the NYT endorse for President in 2012?
A: The question is irrelevant since the NYT will no longer exist in 2012.
Q: How will the NYT change if it's bought by the government?
A: The NYT won't change...except its employees will have a worse health plan.
Q: What will be the new masthead motto of the NYT if it's bailed out by the government?
A: "All the news that's fit to s***."
Q: Will there be any personnel changes at the NYT if the government buys it?
A: Yes. Frank Rich will be promoted to a newly created Obama Administration post: "Deputy Undersecretary for Theatrical and Culinary Correctness."
Sister Pedantic here, Herr Vanderleun, but it's Schadenfreude. You have Schandenfreude...On the other hand. Schandenfreude would mean taking pleasure in someone's disgrace or humiliation or shame. Never mind.

I wrote a somewhat similar snarly post about saving the mailmen here.
