What an excellent article.
This contrition and self-outing is so elaborate that it's almost like they've resolved to be honest or something --THESE GUYS ARE GOOD!
Reading this, you'd almost think their readership wasn't displaying a long and sustained pattern of decline.

If they were an industrial corporation instead of a media giant there would be stories about management accountability and culpability. There would be calls for an independent investigation and for the establishment of an outside auditor because current management was tainted and could not be trusted to investigate itself.
No my friend. What you are reading is a long and convoluted tale to which the bottom line is that we, the management of the NY Times company, are innocent of all wrongdoing. We were the innocent victims of this unscrupulous con man.
Shades of Enron.
