How about instead we offer Keller encouragement and praise for fessing up to serious problems of longstanding and for putting his own career and prestige on the line in making the effort to deal with those problems in a systematic and reasonable way?
How about Keller acknowledging the FACT that the only reason he wrote this damn memo is because the NY Times readership has plummeted so drastically that he's trying to salvage what he can to hold onto as many subscribers as possible?
Nice try, but a two year old can figure out that the Jason Blair scandal didn't "do in" the NY Times. It's the daily onslaught of obnoxious biased reporting that has been going on for years. Not only have the snarky libs escalated their biased tones, they have gotten down right unbearable to read. Unless Keller fires most print reporters and replaces them with ones not educated in the most liberal universities, nothing will change.
Personally, I'm hope to watch the Gray Lady die a very slow death.

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.
