The A Section Ads (Day 1)

The other day Eytan Kobre littered the august pages of Magen-Dovid-Currents with a bevy of baseless claims. Chief among them was the odd insistance that the New York Times prints too many underwear ads in its front section. Begining today, and until this project bores me, we're going to test that claim. I plan to look at the A section ads, and report my findings here. If Eytan is right, I'll make a nice donation to the charity of his choice. If he's wrong, I expect a retraction.

Today's results

Underwear ads: 0
Other ads picturing women in their skivies: 0


DovBear: 1
Eytan Kobre: 0
