Today the Times offers a wide-eyed introduction to the blog Jezebel, after having introduced us to it already way back in 2008. This time, though, the peg is the blog's now famous kerfuffle with The Daily Show, which it accused of having a "Woman Problem." (The ladies of the Comedy Central program strenuously objected to that characterization.) Also today, our own Emily Nussbaum observes that while there may be a shortage of funny women writing and on air in the fake-news world, there isn't one in the world of real news. [NYM]
