Possible NYT layoffs rattle media
Politico, by Dylan Byers

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 1/11/2013 10:02:53 PM

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?

inquiring minds want to know .... Carlos Slim ...was this a true ´financial´ investment?

Same to you Warren Buffett ...did you become a Graham family backer for the ´news coverage/networking´ versus a real investment?

Thought so .... the risk/rewards criteria looked obviously skewed for any true investment ...

"“Isn’t fat usually at top and middle?” one newspaper industry veteran said."

Same is true at the White House that the Times is so willing to worship under an Obama or Clinton and to vilify if Bush or Reagan.

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?

#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

#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.

I´m not got to cry any crocodile tears for them.

“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.

Last week, the online dating site OkCupid switched up its homepage for Mozilla Firefox users. Upon opening the site, a message appeared encouraging members to curb their use of Firefox because the company´s new CEO, Brendan Eich, allegedly opposes equality for gay couples—specifically, he donated $1000 to the campaign for the anti-gay Proposition 8 in 2008. "We´ve devoted the last ten years to bringing people—all people—together," the message read. "If individuals like Mr. Eich had their way, then roughly 8% of the relationships we´ve worked so hard to bring about would be illegal." The company´s action went viral, and within

The dirty work of the left was achieved after Brendan Eich, recently appointed CEO of Mozilla, a software company based in Silicon Valley, was forced out of the company he helped found, all to feed the maw of political correctness. Eich´s "crime" had nothing to do with his job performance, let alone the inclusive work atmosphere he fostered at Mozilla.

Free Markets: "Small Earthquake In Chile, Not Many Killed" was once billed as the world´s dullest headline. Well, now there´s been a huge quake in Chile and not many killed. Not dull at all — viva free markets! It´s a sign of hope, particularly for the earthquake-jittery Los Angeles and Yellowstone areas, to see that Chile, a sliver of a country on the knife´s edge of a jutting tectonic plate, came out of an 8.3 mega-quake, and a series of aftershocks as high as 7.6, with just six dead — four of heart attacks. The United Nations and others, of course, have

Litigation: After thwarting a $9.5 billion judgment from an Ecuadorean court, Chevron is going after the entire edifice of environmentalist enablers who make such junk lawsuits possible. Couldn´t happen to a nicer bunch. To the surprise of many, the oil giant is suing the tony, white-shoe law firm of Patton Boggs for alleged unethical involvement in an all-out legal attack by environmentalists over rainforest pollution in Ecuador. Chevron accuses the oh-so-respected firm of lying, concealing inconvenient facts, running a public smear campaign and miscellaneous other flim-flammery, all for the sake of the dollar signs spinning in their eyes.

The NYC Dunkin´ Donuts location at 37th Street and 8th Avenue has some explaining to do after a video surfaced earlier this week showing a rat just doing rat things on top of some pastries. The donut-fed monster was not alone, according to the man who filmed the video. "My phone ran out of power, or I would´ve filmed the outright nine deep rat assault which followed the action above," wrote Pjayone. "The items in the video that are being besieged upon by the rats were to be sold for that mornings breakfast rush. The events you see in videos happened at

Is British TV chef Nigella Lawson’s archenemy ex-husband Charles Saatchi behind the move to deny her entry to the US? The powerful businessman has a family connection to the Obama campaign and the current US Ambassador in London, Matthew Barzun. Barzun was appointed as US Ambassador by President Obama last year. The former CNET exec is a longtime activist in the Democratic party, and was a prominent fund-raiser for the 2008 Obama campaign, organizing mass events. Saatchi’s nephew, Edward Saatchi, also worked on the 2008 Obama campaign as a manager and founded NationalField, a social network to allow campaign staff to share information.

Classical music legend Itzhak Perlman says he was abandoned at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport after he arrived in town for a charity concert Monday afternoon. The world-renowned violinist, who contracted polio as a child and gets around with the aid of crutches or a scooter, says he has a note on his file with Air Canada that he requires assistance upon landing at the airport. This time, the person who met him was upset that he had carry-on luggage and then abandoned him before they arrived at customs.

SANTIAGO, Chile — A powerful magnitude-8.2 earthquake struck off northern Chile on Tuesday night, setting off a small tsunami that forced evacuations along the country’s entire Pacific coast. Officials reported two deaths and several serious injuries, but the area apparently escaped major damage as landslides blocked roads, power failed for thousands, an airport was damaged and several businesses caught fire. Iquique Gov. Gonzalo Prieto told Radio Cooperativa that two people were known to have died after the quake hit at 8:46 p.m. and several others had serious injuries. The mayor of Tarapaca attributed the deaths to heart attacks. The U.S. Geological Survey

SOFIA - Bulgaria has put on high alert or deployed its air force about 30 times in two months in response to a recent spike in Russian military aircraft flying near its aerial borders on the Black Sea, its defense minister said on Tuesday. Both the West and Russia have carried out a series of military drills as a show of force in the worsening standoff over Russia´s annexation of Crimea, which has sparked retaliatory sanctions from Washington and Brussels. NATO said it was "considering all options" as it studied new steps to bolster its military presence in eastern Europe

The Chilean navy said the first tsunami wave had hit the coast within 45 minutes of the quake. "An earthquake of this

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine.

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now!

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
