I guess the Sayfie Review is no longer edited by Justin Sayfie.

Earlier today, Tampa Bay Times political reporter Adam Smith tweeted:

@AdamSmithTimes: Weird. Romney’s 47% comments all over Fla front pages, but @JustinSayfie couldn’t find a single one to share w readers #Sayfie

To his credit, Justin Sayfie responded that Smith was right:

@JustinSayfie: @adamsmithtimes you are right. @SayfieReview articles editor should have included those stories because comments were made in Florida.

But what’s really interesting about Justin’s tweet is the tacit acknowledgement of an “articles editor” being the one responsible for the selection of the stories on the Sayfie Review, not Justin himself.

Of course, most of us understand that Justin no longer gets up at the crack of dawn to populate his site with aggregated stories from other media outlets.

I just can’t remember him admitting that the Wizard of Oz is only a man behind a curtain. And not even a man behind the curtain, but an “articles editor.”

In other words, it’s not even Justin picking out the best of other people’s work, it’s an “articles editor.”

For the record, SaintPetersBlog will always be edited by this not-so-saintly Peter.
