Michael Wolff: Sulzbergers 'The Stupidest People Who Have Ever Walked The Earth'

Vanity Fair contributor/Newser founder/Murdoch biographer Michael Wolff is no stranger to the provocative quote. And he delivered Wednesday at the We the Media conference in Miami, slamming the New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. and his father, with a classic Wolff dig.

Wolff described the Sulzbergers as "just the stupidest people who have ever walked the earth."

He added, "They are not just hopeless, but hapless. The people who run [The New York Times Company] are ill-equipped to do it."

Wolff, an outspoken critic of the Times, recently wrote that the paper purposely excluded his name and book title from an article about Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch because of his comments about the company.
