Choke that Mixed Metaphor in the Bathtub

Mega-critic David Carr offers Newsweek some advice:

To stick out, Newsweek needs less top-spin on current events and far more curve balls with fewer steps back and more looks forward.

Interesting. In a similar vein, next week, Carr plans to solicit advice from Tom Friedman on how to write in non-gobbledygook.

BONUS FUN: Three paragraphs later, the same David Carr -- and not a malfunctioning cyborg lacking self-consciousness -- criticizes Newsweek writer Fareed Zakaria for bad writing.
