The NY Times insults just about everyone

This revealing categorization of American orchestras was in this morning’s New York Times:

Major American orchestras — those of New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Boston and San Francisco — will traipse through, as usual, along with other regular orchestras, like the Vienna Philharmonic and the Israel Philharmonic. Of smaller American orchestras, Baltimore, St. Louis and Minnesota will be on hand.

“Smaller American orchestras?” By that standard, I must play in a semi-professional orchestra. Doesn’t anyone in the press know anything about what we do anymore?
