Jesus H. Christmas, the New Yorker and New York Times really should just get on with it and rebrand themselves Old White Guys Dreaming about Watergate* (with Good Cartoons) and Senior Center Discussion Groups Unlimited (with Florida Real Estate Porn), respectively.

*Reveries about J.F. Kennedy are, properly understood, prequels to the epic drama that culminated in Nixon's fall from heaven (hell, Mallon begins the article with Richard Nixon.)  So perhaps another possible name for the magazine is Neo-Miltonic Narratives with some animadversions to What the Kids are Listening to These Days.
