Tuesday, Slate, like the New York Times before it and the New Yorker to follow, gave some heady space to the The Hills. And although the piece had more knowing wit, more cheeky humor, and fewer errors than the Times story, Troy Patterson‘s effort still suffered at the hands of the tricky Hills hierarchy: “Young zillionairesses waltzed in the background, extras attending Whitney’s statement that, though she will remain forever grateful for the many doors her internship has opened, what she really wants to do is be a stylist.” Of course, Whitney is no mere intern; she was hired as an illustrious “fashion contributor” at Teen Vogue some time ago. But why harp when there are also insights noting frenemy Whitney‘s “hints of Modigliani around her doe eyes”? After the jump, Radar goes to the Juicy Studio Readability Test for a final comparison of the two articles.
