Overgrown Path to Lebrecht: stop your click bait hypocrisy


Today Norman Lebrecht jumps on the Greta Thunberg bandwagon and calls out the New York Philharmonic for flying to China - see above. In July Lebrecht called out British Airways for the quality of the food served to him on a flight to Shanghai - see below. What surprises me is not that Lebrecht keeps peddling this opportunistic hypocrisy, but that the classical music industry continues to take him seriously.
