The comments are amusing.

Tells us where the NYT stands these days, huh?
(Those *are* the same guys who think Jennifer Lawrence is too fat to play an athletic backwoods huntress.)

They did feature dissenting opinions, though:

But even that is more than a bit condescending.
If you think the Alzheimers Lady had standards or intellectual viability in decades past, you didn't read it. This is typical of their output throughout all the decades of my lifetime.

Jason Bair wasn't a flier either.

The NYT has always relied upon inspiring a sense of elitism in its readers rather than putting out a good product.
