HERE’S A NEW YORK TIMES story on the Bee blogging brouhaha. It’s pretty good overall, and features Weintraub saying that his Bee editors have committed to being available whenever he wants to post. I suspect that they’ll find that a bit of a strain, but maybe not: the Bee is big enough, I suppose, to have someone on duty at all hours. Weintraub also says that this may detract somewhat from the immediacy and spontaneity of his writing, and I think that pretty much has to be the case.
