Skip to comments.New York Times Editors Decry “Humiliating Process” Of Layoffs
Posted on 06/28/2017 6:17:07 PM PDT by Hojczyk
Using words including betrayal, humiliating and covfefe and suggesting that management had compared them to dogs urinating on fire hydrants, copy editors at the New York Times today let executive editor Dean Baquet and his heir apparent, Joseph Kahn, know exactly how they feel about taking the brunt of layoffs and buyouts as the Times expands its reporting ranks.
The latest flare-up comes at a moment when the Times also is dealing with a libel lawsuit filed by former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin over a Times Op-Ed column erroneously linking her to violent attacks on public figures. In a letter addressed to the two top editors and written under the letterhead of the NewsGuilds NYT unit, they also included a plea for reconsideration of the plan to eliminate some 100 editors from their ranks.
A short time later, Baquet and Kahn responded, in a letter addressed to New York NewsGuild president Grant Glickson. We take those concerns seriously, they wrote. We feel a compelling need to reduce separate layers of editing
and to speed up production.
We have also made clear that in an environment of limited resources, we intend to invest more in recruiting top talent to keep us ahead

copy editors = army of left wing hacks
There’s not a more deserving group for layoffs on the planet.
Have they been recruiting fiction majors?
100 editors??? You could have fooled us.
Good to see Palin sueing the bastards...its actually about done time we used the left tactics and stop laying down in a fetal position...taking their crap...
A dog needs to reply to his pee-mail. It is only natural.
FAKE NEWS !!!
Even Hollywood Dateline plays the FAKE NEWS game. Lawsuit is over an EDITORIAL, not an Op-Ed column.
Funny, they sure love to advocate for Trump and his staff and his appointments being laid off.
Great. These ;lefty idiots need mucho humiliation...and ridicule. I hope all of these dishonest loser bums are fired. Civil society would be better off if these chronic liars were on the streets begging and being humiliated every minute of their malignant lives. I laugh at their uselessness.
Being employed by The Slimes is white collae welfare.
That survey indicated that the large majority of those surveyed chose to enter journalism because they wanted to change the world.
That's what's wrong with today's "journalists"...facts mean nothing to them.
Maybe they can get a job at McDonalds. Maybe...
My dog is very selective about marking. I figure she is working out the fragrance blending...
After going through this myself years ago and watching the same happen to many friends after the crash I have zero sympathy for these cretin “journalists” who thought their industry bulletproof.
Boo Freakin’ Hoo!
Wait a minute. The paper is laying off 100 editors but they turn around and say they plan on offsetting that by recruiting top talent. So, why, exactly, would a true “top talent” want to work at a place that just laid people off??
Are they unable to process the logical disconnect here?
