Why does this woman still have a column?

Recently busted for plagiarism, Maureen Dowd of the New York Times turns in yet another mediocre riff on on a pop cultural phenomenon she poorly understands.

She throws out this line: "As an explosion of pixels hits our TV screens this weekend, with the digital and high-def revolution, my unscientific survey shows women are less excited about high-def than men."

Er, yes, ok, men like high def more than women - wow, there's a new take - but the switch to digital broadcasting has nothing to do with HD. There's not going to be be any more or any less HD just because analog broadcasting ended.

Does The Times not have editors any more? I realize times are tough in the newspaper business, but really.
