By Simon JenkinsPublished October 07, 2018 11:55:59I’ve never heard of the NYT, but the editors of its flagship newspaper have.
This week, the NYT made news by firing a journalist, who is a senior writer on the newspaper’s digital news platform.
The decision, which is being investigated by the NYT board of directors, was seen as a signal that the paper is ready to take on the digital publishing world.
But for its editors, who have been running an office in Manhattan since 2013, the move to oust the paper’s editor and chief digital officer comes at a time when they’re grappling with a global economic crisis, the US government’s trade war, and the fallout from Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
“We had a lot of good stories at the beginning of this year, and it’s really been about being good in a lot [of] ways,” one of the editors, Ben Jealous, told me.
Jealous is a former senior editor of the Los Angeles Times and now heads the digital news site The Atlantic, which launched in the early days of the Trump administration.
Jealous’s departure was the result of a disagreement over editorial standards, Jealous said, and not an effort to shut down the newspaper.
A former executive of the paper, the paper has since laid off at least 50 journalists, including two who had worked on digital platforms like Buzzfeed and Vox.
But the decision to fire the editor came after several months of growing tension.
It was Jealous’s first major editorial decision in his time at the NYT.
Last fall, he said, the company decided that the NYT would no longer publish content from news outlets like Vox, Buzzfeed, and Breitbart, as well as several others.
In an internal memo, the editor-in-chief called the decisions “unconscionable,” and said the decision was driven by a fear that the editorial process was not sufficiently open to all viewpoints.
“I’m concerned about our editorial process being open to those of us who believe strongly that news outlets have a responsibility to be more transparent about the sources of news,” Jealous wrote in the memo.
“This has to be done, and this has to change.”
The NYT is the most prestigious newspaper in the world, and its newsrooms are famous for their transparency.
But it has struggled to maintain its reputation, particularly since it became the first mainstream newspaper in America to publish a fake article by an anti-Trump conspiracy theorist, which led to the resignation of its editor, Mark Lilla.
The NYT did not respond to requests for comment.
But some of the editor’s allies believe the NYT has been too open, too cozy with the media industry, and too reliant on the tech companies that produce its content.
There’s a tension between what the editors want and what is politically expedient for the NYT to achieve, said Peter Schweizer, a former congressional staffer who worked on the Clinton White House staff.
Schweizer, now a professor at American University’s Heller School of Journalism, has been critical of the Times’ approach to digital journalism.
He wrote about this in a recent blog post.
I don’t believe that the NYTimes is a newspaper that will ever be able to be neutral, but that’s what they do.
For decades, the NY Times has been the dominant news source, and they are in a position to make decisions that are politically expedients.
However, I think the NYT is in a unique position to be a champion of democracy and free speech, and I don’t think they have a choice.
What they do have is a huge problem, and that is they’re the last bastion of liberal journalism in the United States.
But if you think about it, the only way to change things is to get rid of the politicians, and you can’t do that without a revolution, said Schweizer.
The Times has made a number of decisions to get ahead in the digital world.
Its newsrooms have become the largest in the country.
They have expanded into many areas of the world.
Its journalists have become a key component of a diverse community of media that has an important role in shaping and informing the future of our country.
But the NYT editorial board has been a consistent opponent of the digital revolution, and has consistently tried to stop it, said one of its members, a reporter at the New York Times.
That includes the hiring of some of its journalists to work at tech companies like Facebook and Twitter, where the Times’s reporters have been targeted for their work on fake news stories.
As part of its efforts to push back on the rise of the internet, the Times has published an open letter from its editorial board that called for a more transparent and open journalism.
The letter argues that the Times should not be the only place where stories are produced, and instead
