Does anyone know how much circulation the NYT has lost over the past few years?

"Keller encouraged his colleagues to undertake "a concerted effort to stretch beyond our predominantly urban, culturally liberal orientation, to cover the full range of our national conversation."

Bottom line: We're losing money and need to appeal to conservative readership.

Wake up, Washington Post, you're next!

"Both legs and a shoulder should do nicely."

LOL! We can give 'em a break AFTER they change their ways.

Ask yourself if those doctrinaire little weanies would do the same for us. Let's see an in-depth investigation of the Air America scandal pursued with the same vigor as their trying to unseal adoption records for Judge Roberts.

And the we'll move the goal post.

"A significant part of the effort to reach out ... Keller encouraged the daily newsroom staff to listen ... "

If he had any guts, and was committed to changing the paper, he would fire 1/2 the editorial staff and start all over.

Using the same pukes will accomplish nothing.

heck with giving them 1/2 the editorial page. Give them 1/2 of the jobs as EDITORS.

Judith Miller is going to give the NYT the "break" it justly deserves. Shine the light on the dark places, and life renews...

What's the point?

One year ago and NO constructive changes after Ombudsman Okrent admitted that the NY Times was Liberal we get another admission. So what. Action not talk.

"Is the NY Times a Liberal Newspaper?

OF course it is."

I still want to know who the hell Miller is "protecting." Because I have a feeling that if revealed it will completely destroy the left's whole "destroy Karl Rove at any cost" campaign.

I'll wait until the NYT recognizes that it is on a Jihad against Bush and decides that Jihad is NOT the answer.

She'll spill the beans soon- and when Judith gives up the key, the rat & cockroach scramble rodeo, will be a sight to see...

The New York Times (search) has been asking lawyers who specialize in adoption cases for advice on how to get into the sealed court records on Supreme Court nominee John Roberts' two adopted children.

The NYT can't even do that right. They should know they have to go to Hillary Clinton for stuff like that. That's one of the things a personal secret police force is good at.

So how should long-suffering critics of the Times react to Keller’s words and actions?

You mean actions like hiring lawyers to try to unseal the adoption records of John Roberts' four and five-year-old children, so the Times' staff DNC hacks can tear them to pieces looking for any dirt they can find to sink his nomination? Sure sounds like Keller's trying real hard to "change the culture" there all right! </s>
