Skip to comments.New York Times Insider: Multi-Million Dollar Shortfall Causing Drastic Cuts
Posted on 12/23/2014 6:22:16 PM PST by Beave Meister
Yesterday, New York Times readers were treated to a beautifully nuanced and balanced and richly detailed feature about a topic very much in the mix. Its author, Ariel Kaminer, came by her story and its scoopthe first interview with the accused (possibly falsely) rapist of the woman at Columbia who is carrying a mattress around campus to make a statement about campus sexual violenceby developing deep roots in a narrow beat, higher education. And now, Ms. Kaminer will join a hundred or so of her colleagues on the unemployment line as the Times once again cuts costs by cutting journalists.
The genius of the way The New York Times has structured itself is that lofty journalistic goals are protected from the short-term demands of grubby ordinary shareholders. Ironicallyand distressingly, for those who care about journalismit now appears that the financial demands of those holding the shares, and particularly the generous dividend they pay to the family members who hold large chunks of those shares, are now making it difficult to perform the very journalism the structure was created to protect.

"Try to make a touchdown, you scumbags."
” as the Times once again cuts costs by cutting journalists.”
“as the Times once again cuts costs by cutting ‘journalists’”
cry me a river.
Bailout's a coming.
Money grubbing swine ....
as the Times once again cuts costs by cutting journalists.
The last journalist left decades ago. The Times is cutting its creative writing and propaganda staff.
this paper deserves to die, for all the distortions, falsifications, and cover-ups its editors have done to its “news” coverage
(but... please save the Crossword puzzles!!!)
>> Die you gravy sucking pig
Succinct, complete, and elegant! I like it!
"Die you egg-sucking pigs!"
which I recall from an episode of Gunsmoke. I think the retort included the word "varmint", but I'm not sure.
As for the NYT - I like to see it enduring a slow and painful denouement.
Was the author being sarcastic here? It's hard to tell. Where ever will Ms. Kaminer find another job writing stories about women walking around with a mattress on their backs? Oh, the tragedy....oh, the Humanity!
It's like watching an iconic Vegas casino at the moment of implosion.
The crowd cheers...!
The Old Gay Lady is immune compromised. GRIDS maybe?
This is rich schadenfreude.
The ‘grubby’ hands of ‘ordinary’ shareholders.
Bye-Bye NY Times!
OH BOY! Sorry. hehehehehehehehhheeeeee. WOOOHOOOO!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. OK. Deep breath. hehehe.
The genius of the way the New York Times has structured itself is that lofty journalistic goals are protected ... HAHAHAHAHA STOP!!!!!! MY STOMACH!!!! OOWWWWWW HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHOOHOOOHHOOOOOHEEEHHEHEEHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAH
>> I like to see it enduring a slow and painful denouement.
Seeing them suffer is cool, but the problem is, they still publish their crap during the epilog.
[ epilog is a new word I learned ‘cause I looked up “denouement” and they’re synonyms. And all this time, I thought “denouement” meant “hair removal”. Learn somethin’ new ever day! :-) ]
Great news (and a great thread). Thanks for posting.
DEFUND socialists AND their propagandists.
