In the news business, no one is safe - not even senior editors at The New York Times. The media business was shaken on Friday when it was reported, first in New York Magazine and confirmed by POLITICO, that managing editor John Geddes, assistant managing editors Jim Roberts and Susan Edgerly, former Washington editor Rick Berke, and former Times Magazine editor Jerry Mazorati could all be casualties of the Times’ effort to cut costs. “It is hard to imagine there are too many sacred cows left in any newsroom, given the general state of our industry,”
Comments: What doing the water-carrying for The One gets you. Are they proud of their Obama endorsement? Their Obama donations? Their oozing love for Obama in their coverage?
I normally don´t relish other people´s miseries, but in THIS case...
The NYT and other liberal publications and their editors/reporters have done horrible damage to many businesses. They have caused countless job losses and economic damage. They destroyed hundreds of thousands of lives--and they did it knowingly, willingly and with glee.
So, to the NYT staff, what comes around goes around. You got what you deserved.
The opening paragraph suggests that the layoff were due to the financial straits of industry. Not so, its due to terrible returns of the investment in the NY Times. When "the masses" won´t buy your rag, you eventually have to cut the staff. Hopefully that will include Nobel prize winning economists.
Its not like they are "reporting" the news or exercising journalism. All they need is a photocopier re re-print the democrat talking points. And for local news, just reprint the Bloomberg talking points.
Besides.....there are how many leftist new organizations reporting the exact same thing?
Good. It couldn´t have happened any better to arse licking demonrat supporters. The Slimes practice of reporting all the lies fit to print and having the WH approve those stories has finally come home to roost.
Yes to all above and I remember when they gave up (didn´t require a Heimlich) the info that our intelligence was tracking Osama´s and other of his ilk cell phone gps locations and conversations even tho Bush 43 administration pled with them not to ...the NYT rots in local grocery store bins...
#18 - have you seen some of the conservative articles in Pravda recently? They have taken on topics like our debt, entitlements and most recently the 2nd Amendment and global warming BS, all from the pro-conservative prospective. I have read at least a half dozen articles in Pravda that would NEVER appear in the NYT, WAPO, or any other liberal rag. Pretty pathetic that Pravda is more fair and balanced than our MSM
My...my...what a difference one election makes. After the slimes, a good many other rags ought to be heading down the same road. Something about that old supply and demand thing, no? People don´t like a company´s product, company goes away. no rocket science here. Now to see it happen in the television news media which is long overdue.
#24--I´d forgotten about that! The NYT did print articles about Osama´s gps cell phone locations. How many lives were lost? How much treasure spent because of their treachery? In any other nation, the editors-in-chief would still be in jail. Obama is a job destroyer. The NYT thought they´d bought some cover. Nice to see karma in action.
Would that the same could happen to TV media, including some of the expensive dinosaur comedians who have so much fun denigrating. As for the newspapers, I take quiet pleasure whenever layoffs are announced. There´s not much of an industry left to absorb some of these galoots. Wonder where they will go?
I´m surprised that the Goebbels arm of the Obama regime has lasted this long. I would bet my bottom dollar that the NYT was a recipient of stimulus money to keep them afloat. It´s never been publicly revealed where the rest of that money went and, as mentioned above, they worshiped ol´ jug ears and his obnoxious, meddling wife for years.
May they not rest in peace for their treachery towards the American people.
The Slimes could probably become a profitable entity in a short time IF they would become an honest, fact finding, investigating newspaper instead of having become nothing more that a propaganda machine for leftists, socialists, communists, progressives, etc. However, even now, I really don´t think that they perceive the reasons for their downfall.
If these propaganda machines ever disappear maybe the sheeple will start listing to some fact laden common sense programs like Levin, Limbaugh and Hannity. I admit it will be hard for the goverment workers i mean parasite´s and well fare crowd to not have there vote bought by the liberal goverment. Only then will the votes change
Now look what they´ve done! My bird stopped singing because his cage wont be lined anymore and the dog is whining because when he wets the floor I´ve got nothing to put down underneath him! Thanks a lot!
“Let me attempt to be optimistic: Maybe the scary sense of uncertainty that permeates the place right now will inspire creativity, innovation, risk-taking,” the staffer said.
To the Times´ staffer that said this: Seems there´s been too much creativity and innovation in your newspaper. Why not just start telling the truth, reporting the news and, have some curiosity and good old fashioned skepticism when being fed the White House talking points and press releases. You know, the same curiosity and skepticism you reserve for Republicans.
That said, the demise of this entire corporation cannot come fast enough for me.
The Hawaiian health official who verified the authenticity of President Obama’s birth certificate died in a small plane crash. The plane, carrying a pilot and eight passengers, went down Wednesday in the water off the Hawaiian island of Molokai, the Maui Fire Department said. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser was among the first outlets to report that the lone fatality was Loretta Fuddy. Tom Matsuda, the interim executive director of Hawaii’s health insurance exchange, confirmed Fuddy’s death. Fuddy, 65, became acting health director in January 2011. After being confirmed as the permanent health director, Fuddy made news in April 2011 when she verified the

In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
A witness in the case of the murder of Venezuelan Ambassador Olga Fonseca in Kenya 2012 told a court in Nairobi on Wednesday that the diplomatic mission would use the diplomatic bag for drug-trafficking purposes. "I am aware that the embassy was used to traffic drugs using the diplomatic bag," said former embassy driver Kevin Lameck, AFP reported. Fonseca, aged 57, was found strangled to death in her residence in Nairobi in July 2012. Seven people have been accused in the case, including Dwight Sagaray, the then first secretary of the embassy. Lameck´s statement was issued during cross-examination by Sagarya´s defense Lawyer Katwa Kigen.
A group of 25 people identified as members of Colombian rebel National Liberation Army (ELN) evicted some 150 people out of a tourist resort south Táchira state, specifically in La Espuma town, southwest Venezuela, local press reported. According to newspaper El Diario de Los Andes, the troops carried rifles and were dressed in military uniforms. They kicked people out of their rooms.

Socialism: Venezuela´s President Nicolas Maduro unveiled his big plan for socialism Monday night, just as a blackout engulfed the country. Sure, it´s comical. But it´s less so upon realizing that California may see the same thing. The downward slide in Caracas is becoming more of a cautionary tale than just a freak show of Stalinist communist throwbacks run wild. In California, energy officials warn that the state and others like it face a catastrophic collapse of its power grid due to the many green energy schemes that have made managing energy flow difficult. "Energy officials worry a lot these days
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous. Yet another person claiming it´s racist to have a white Santa.’ And by the way, for all you kids
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
THE Internet has been abuzz over the spectacle of President Obama and the prime ministers of Britain and Denmark snapping a photo of themselves — a “selfie,” to use the mot du jour — with a smartphone at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa on Tuesday. Leaving aside whether it was appropriate, the moment captured the democratization of image making that is a hallmark of our gadget-filled, technologically rich era. Manifestly undemocratic, in contrast, is the way Mr. Obama’s administration — in hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on — has systematically tried
If you go down on the ice today you´re sure of a big surprise - a rare glimpse of 20 polar bears gorging on a bloody midnight feast. These photographs show a rare cluster of males, females and cubs all dining out on the remains of a whale carcass. They spent a night and a day stripping every last morsel from the mammoth sea creature. Usually Polar bears are solitary and would never tolerate being so close to each other. But with food in plentiful supply and bellies dragging on the floor they seem too lethargic to fight.Wildlife photographer Michal
