The NYT is no longer thought of as the newspaper of record. A big win for the good guys.

By the way, what does the title mean: "Resigned as Executive Editor?" What other titles does he hold?

To see from what lofty heights The New York Times has fallen, note that the newspaper's first publisher, Henry J. Raymond, was at the same time Chairman of the Republican National Committee.

Does this mean he's out of the paper altogether or is this just a "symbolic" resignation? If he's still there, then his influence is there.

As if changing out editors will make one whit of difference to the overall leftist bilge pumped out by the NY Slimes...

Hope it's Boyd. Neither of them has any credibility with the reporters........who actually have no credibility of their own IMHO

NY Times says Howard Raines resigns as executive editor

Howell Raines must be breathing a sigh of relief then.

Herbert is definitely the first that needs to go. Dowd is a close #2.

Jerry Nachman just called the NYT the "prayer mat" of the network nightly news broadcasts. LOL!

Paul Krugman needs a whack on the head

Based on my view of Krugman, I strongly suspect he wouldn't feel a thing.

I'm afraid that rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic isn't going to do the NYT any good. The Cult of Personality that infests this organization runs far deeper than just one or two men.
