Blair is black and a college dropout. I read that he used to be a drinking buddy with managing editor Boyd, who is also black.

The brothers are looking after their own.

You have a point. According to the MSNBC article :

Indeed, more than one Times staffer pointed out that the paper’s national staff would not have been in need of the services of an untested young reporter with a spotty track record had a number of veterans not been pushed out by Raines last year.
It seems that several season reporters were dismissed last year because they did not add much to the diversity goal
