The Croissant Detail is Journalism At Its Finest

What he did not address was the chief concern on everyone’s mind: two days earlier, without warning, he had fired the magazine’s well-liked editor, Roger D. Hodge, in a five-minute conversation as Mr. Hodge was finishing his breakfast croissant.

But was the pastry filled with jam or chocolate? Way to miss the real story, newspaper of record.

I also like how the croissant detail is meant to infer that Hodge is yet another effete, French-loving liberal.
