NY Times staffers near mutiny as paper continues to slide into oblivion
American Thinker ^ | 12/28/11 | Rick Moran

Posted on 12/28/2011 8:32:21 AM PST by Nachum

The rocky, rickety boat that is the New York times has long been in peril of sinking. Now the Times staffers have sent a letter to publisher Arthur Sulzberger expressing "profound dismay" at the direction the company is headed.

Huffington Post:

The letter calls attention to several grievances. Last week, Times brass notified foreign citizens employed in the paper's overseas bureaus that their pensions would be frozen. In the letter, Times staffers dismayed by this decision point out to Sulzberger that some of these foreign employees, working alongside Times reporters in war zones, have "risked their lives so that we can do our jobs."

The open letter may have been prompted by this and other recent decisions, but it brought to the surface long-simmering tensions. In the past several years, staffers have faced temporary pay cuts, layoffs, and buyouts. They have worked since March without a new contract. Regarding ongoing negotiations, the letter notes that Sulzberger's "negotiators have demanded a freeze of our pension plan and an end to our independent health insurance." O'Meara said staffers did not receive a raise this year.

Welcome to the real world guys. Be glad you’ve got a job - a whole lot of people don’t.

For years I bought books usually based upon the NYT bestsellers lists of which dominated the market shelves and bookstores.

Now that I have converted to E-books the NYT lists are meaningless, what I search for is independent authors with introductory or even free books, just to get themselves heard.

Die NYT, die in a blaze of old wrinkled yellow paper. You ate the the cookie on socialism plate.

The problem with the NY Times shrinking readership is its op ed page. Staffers should demand their heads.

The Times, like all dead-tree news outlets, is simply being replaced by technology. Their internal fights are death spasms.

That they are left-leaning is not so much the cause but the laugh line in the story.

Oh boo hoo...many Americans saw their salaries go down this year or their job completely gone.

A suggestion for the Slimes... try reporting NEWS without a slant for a change. You’d be surprised at the money you’ll make doing that.

Think of the left as a Jim Jones cult except you can leave thru the front gate and go home. Well since the cult left has been taken over by psychopaths who love nothing better than to call its 95% white readership racist for the smallest infraction of PC it is no suprise people are leaving. Everyday on the Left is a Mall of America and you better damn well not notice, but you damn well better suffer in silence.

Whatever. I guess if the NYT goes out of business, no news really will be good news.

What a caricature of liberal attitudes. They are mad because they aren’t getting enough and resentful of other employees who are getting more than they do.

What, any of these whiners plan on giving up their gold plated pensions and health care plans? Perhaps even reduce their health care plans to something that ONLY costs $1000 a month? No?

Typical liberal ideology... Give them loads of stuff, but don’t you dare take one of my benefits away. When they look at those fellows who were risking their lives in war zones who might not get a pension now, I sure hope that at least one pauses to realize that this is probably JUST from the addition of sex change operation benefits to the company insurance plan. And when these guys hear the sad stories that health benefits are being slashed, they can take comfort that 12% of the staff claims to be gay to give roommates a free ride on the company health plan.

Once again, it is the unacknowledged personal greed that is hurting others.

“O’Meara said staffers did not receive a raise this year.”

I didn’t get a raise this year either. Nor did I get one last year, and the year before that I took a 5% cut. Forgive me if I am less than sympathetic to their plight...

These jerks can't even let the “Food” section of the NYTimes alone. Now they're putting all measurements into the metric system rather than the imperial. So now instead of half a cup of flour, you have to get...what? 2,000 grams of flour or something? All to toady up to European sophistication!

Sulzberger's "negotiators have demanded...an end to our independent health insurance."

That's the funniest thing I've read in years. The communists at the Times are wailing that the eeeevil capitalists won't subsidize their health care.

Welcome to Russia, comrades.

[Now that I have converted to E-books the NYT lists are meaningless, what I search for is independent authors with introductory or even free books, just to get themselves heard.]

I now have three titles in publication on Amazon that NEVER would have seen the light of day given the liberal bent of publishers in general. There are 11 bios of Nancy Pelosi, I wrote the only bio of Harry Reid (think about that for a moment, why no one would consider the third most powerful man in the US bio worthy).
Die NYT, die a horrible death, and your little book reviews too!

Pinch and the family is in preparations to sell the paper to Carlos Slim.

In order to make the numbers work for Senor Slim, Pinch is slashing costs and dumping assets.

The best part is that 50% of the paid newsroom staff will be eliminated in order to right-size the NYT to the new operating environment.

2012 at the NYT will be fun to watch as Pinch moves forward on his sale to Senor Slim.

Carlos Slim could care less about a bunch of whiny liberals. He wants to make money. And Pinch and the family want to cash out to Senor Slim.

Oh, boohoo, Pinch is being squeezed from all sides. While the mutineers are restless, agitated and out for blood, Pinch concerns himself with finding the missing strawberries.

They should get all their rich lefty friends together and buy it. Looks like $1 billion should give them ownership. Then they can run it non-profit for the good of the employees. If their ideas for running a company are so great, show us how to make them work.

I wish unions and rich democrats would take this approach rather than complaining about how other people run companies. I’d guess unions could have bought up GM (with government dollars of course) and now be paying employees what ever they want.

Can’t wait to see how Senor Slim remakes the Times. Just what NYC has always needed—a Mexican tabloid. If you want to see the Old Gray Lady in a couple of years, check out El Nuevo Alarma, which features graphic photos of Mexican drug violence (warning: some of the shots are extremely gory).

http://nuevoalarma.com.mx/alarmaprincipal.html

Alarma only has a circulation of about 80,000, but one of every four copies is sold in the U.S. I’m sure that’s come to Senor Slim’s attention. Mo Dowd’s column next to a full-color shot of a headless corpse? Sounds like a winner to me. But then again, how can you tell the difference?

I was watching the Food Network the other day and there was some gal with a British accent on. She said (something like) Add one cup of flour and 10 grams of oil. Mixing the two systems together in the same breath.

HMMM..... The presstitutes are disgruntled with the madam. What’s worse, the Old Gray Whore is shown to be syphilitic.

I look forward to seeing the same destruction of FOX news.

The first thing Carlos Slim is going to do is convert 50% of the editorial NYT product to the Huffington Post model of using slave labor.

The cost savings will be used to fund the NYT outstanding pension obligations.

The staff at the NYTimes are all life-long committed leftists.

They thnk that there’s money somewhere so that they can all be paid even though no one wants to pay to read their drivel.

Hope they all end up unemployed and their pensions lost to the NYTimes’ bankruptcy.

We have an interesting thing going on in the Pittsburgh region. The Post-Gazette which owned the town for years has been hemorrhaging subscribers to such an extent that it is now trying to virtually give away the print edition and charge for premium on-line content with little success. Last year, it was forced to sell the naming rights for a large concert venue to an out of town bank moving into the Pittsburgh region which it had owned since its inception.

Meanwhile, its once minor suburban counterpart, the Tribune-Review has moved in from the suburbs to scoop up subscribers, a television station, several radio stations and acquire and/or create other regional newspapers and specialty publications. Its on-line content is free and, what's more, it is actually making money to support this expansion.

What's the key difference in the business models between the Tribune-Review and the Post Gazette?

Well, I can't say for sure. But the Tribune-Review does actual reporting even if it sometimes drifts into crazy Pat Buchanan/Ron Paul worldviews on some of its editorial positions. The Post-Gazette, OTOH, faithfully serves up your usual liberal pablum. They cannot seem to figure out if there is any connection.

Expressing profound dismay at the direction the paper is heading?

Dear Emperor Hirohito: I am at the controls of a modified Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa (Type 1 Fighter) with a pair of BOMBS attached to my wings. I am drawing all kinds of enemy flak as I approach American ships. Can you please get me out of this? Sincerely yours, Flying Low in Nakajima

Awesome!! Schadenfreude BUMP!

I hope all of those “staffers” lose their jobs, their homes, their life savings, and their families. For the damage they and their Democrat newsroom have done to America over the past several decades they deserve nothing less. The ironic part about all this is that the New York Times’ impending death is a slow, excruciating death, much like the state-sanctioned starvation murder of Terri Schiavo that the liberals enjoyed so much.

“A suggestion for the Slimes... try reporting NEWS without a slant for a change. You’d be surprised at the money you’ll make doing that.”

Please don’t give Pinch any good ideas. this turd is taking it’s final turns around the bowl and we don’t want anything to slow the death spiral. Besides, it will be fun to watch Pinch’s relatives (you know all the worthless trust fund kids who haven’t worked a day in their lives) hang him in the public square for pi$$ing away their “inheritances!” As for the angst of the Slimes employees, ask me if I give a rats’ a$$; they’ve sold out their country to Marxism!
