The NYTPicker's 2009 NYT Byline Of The Year Competition Heats Up With The Sudden Arrival Of Jauretsi Saizarbitoria.
A warm welcome to Jauretsi Saizarbitoria, whose byline turned up yesterday on two articles on "The Moment" blog. Yes, that counts.
Saizarbitoria isn't a journalist, exactly. She works by day for a company called StarworksNY, which casts celebrities for ad campaigns and magazine covers. Honestly, we even briefly considered trying to expose her as a violator of various NYT freelancing rules, but we couldn't exactly figure out which rules she broke. There appears to be a loophole that lets people freelance for the NYT's T Magazine while getting paid by fashion designers. Paging Whitney Port!
