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.

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>

I notice that a month later there's been not a single letter typeset in the Ol' Gray Whore about AAR stealing from little "inner city" kids and alzhimers patients.

The problem isn't going to be cured by a memo.

Most of the people on the news/editorial staff were chosen BECAUSE of their Liberal biases. Asking a Liberal to be less liberal is like asking a pit bull to be less canine.

Fire em and start again or shaddup already!

"The NYT is liberal because the Sulzberger family which OWNS the NTY is. It will continue to be so, until the publisher "Pinch" Sulzberger changes his views.
"

When you are vey wealthy and having a failed business, you use it as a write off. If the NY Slimes just reported just the facts and left out the commentators opinions(they are not articles, they are left wing opinion pieces), then maybe the readership will go up and they will begin to make money.

Wow, what a concept. Telling the truth and gettig paid for it.

I live in the Portland, Oregon area and have been barraged with calls from the NYT over the past two weeks to become a subscriber.

I finally answered one and told the poor lady selling this pathetic rag that I will never again believe a word the NYT writes following their "missing weapons" collaboration with John Kerry the week before the election.

I'm not even sure if Brooks is pro-life or not, but the column was superbly placed and timed.

I remember that column, and the core argument (IIRC) - that the Court never should've removed abortion from state legislatures - was certainly an interesting and provocative one. But there is still a large constituency of social conservatives who are a big part of the American right and, to many NYT readers, are a bunch of 19th-century knuckle-draggers. To acknowledge the strength of their agenda would, I think, be too uncomfortable for NYT opinion manufacturers.

Let's also keep in mind that bias as often means what is NOT said as well as what is said.
