Heads Up! NYT’s Jim Rutenberg Footnotes Today’s Column

Well this is new.

New York Times media columnist Jim Rutenberg has a couple of term-paper-style footnotes in his piece today.

Check out the middle and righthand columns.

The hardscanning staff didn’t see any other footnotes in the Business section, or in the A section for that matter. No editor’s note either.

But we hasten to point out that Alex Weprin of Politico’s Morning Media also noticed  the oddity.
