Deceased New York Times hater ‘having a good chuckle’ in heaven, says son

New York Post
Amos Shuchman’s paid death notice in The New York Times noted that he “Loved everything about NYC, except the New York Times.”

His son tells the New York Post that Schuchman preferred…the New York Post.

“We think he is in heaven now with a New York Post and a falafel sandwich, having a good chuckle over this notoriety,” his son said.

Daniel Shuchman acknowledged that his father might not have liked his obit because he would “not have wanted to generate revenue for the Times.”

But “he would have laughed heartily at the irony and the posthumous attention the obituary is getting,’’ the son said.

Times spokesperson Eileen Murphy told Post reporters Jennifer Bain and Pedro Oliveira Jr. she thought the notice was “sort of amusing.”
