I read the New York Times Latest News Blog at least twice a day -- essentially all the front page stories, and a smattering of the rest, and I never heard of Jennifer Lawrence.
Well ,considering they got slapped around by a whole range of organizations for their reviewer's demeaning characterization of a rising young actress who looks like a real woman and not a plastic doll, you really wouldn't expect the NYT to actually *report* on it.
The advantage of reading multiple news sources is you can compare the different flavors of koolaid.
The NYT has been living off their last century reputation for way too long.
But if taking them at their gospel word floats your boat, have at it!
