Kimye Wedding SKEWERED By New York Post in Awesome "Article"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

When it came to Kim Kardashian marrying Kanye West over the weekend, the New York Post opted for a different angle than most major media outlets.

Not only was the report buried inside the paper, and only a few paragraphs long, its headline was "ALERT (yawn): Kimye weds" and this was all it said:

Kimye Wedding Article

"Two jackasses got married in Italy Saturday." Sort of says it all right there.

The Post also lists Kim as "sex tape star" - not inaccurate, considering how the Kim Kardashian sex tape launched her career - and West as "egoist."

Their nuptials, the venerable paper observes, was opulent enough for Florence's Medici Dynasty, yet tacky enough for reality TV. And that's really about it.

Of course, the Post is totally having its Kimye wedding cake and eating it too, as its classic non-story has been preceded by many legitimate ones.

Many legitimate ones. Her last wedding was front page news, and it's not like they eschew all things Kim on a daily basis. Just the same, so well played.

Reader reactions ranged from positive to ... okay, all positive. A sampling:

  • Props: @nypost has the best possible story on the Kimye wedding.
  • Great coverage of the Kimye wedding in the NY Post!
  • NY Post article about Kimye wedding....this is fantastic! Well done @nypost
  • Best article ever published in the NY Post. #kimye
  • I like how the NY Post handled the Kanye West/Kim Kardashian wedding news.
  • Standing O to the NY Post for their #Kimye coverage. @nypost
  • The NY Post gets one right.

Pretty hilarious and true stuff all around from NYC's favorite tabloid.

And because we know you still care at the same time you make fun of them (at least some of you do), click through Kim Kardashian wedding photos below:

I thought the New York Post was a respectable paper. Looks like page Six to me. If they didn't care that they were getting married, then there was no reason to even report it. Like my granny taught me, "if you don't have anything nice to say..."

Renewing my New York Post home delivery subscrption-for THe BEST overall Reporting and Staff.
This kanye west wedding is no longer a story- it is a disgrace-and epitomizes the greed and Tale of 2 Cities- This wedding was not a fairy tale, of Cinderella and the Prince. this is a shameful garish display of 2 people and their self indulgetn families . While multi millions are being squandered and spent Chidlren are going to bed hungry and without proper medical care;Funding cut for medical research;Homeless ness; and on this Memorial Day, War heroes and Vets are unable to get proper medical and PTSD treatment. Any tabloids that keep writing about their disgraceful display, and TV networks that think their story has any redeeming value,will be boycotted by me . Thanks New York Post!
