Slate: The secret moral hierarchy of the New York Post

It was the "$177 Bagel" that did it, finally solved for me the mystery of how the New York Post remains the nation's iconic daily tabloid in a media realm overrun by celebrification.
I sometimes wonder why APOD is so popular. Perhaps one clue is in this analysis of the NY Post's popularity. BTW I am not sure I completely agree with the final assessment.
