Thursday's HOT MIC

Restless Times for the Grey Lady

The New York Times spent most of the early days of the Trump administration insisting that it is not, as the president often insists, failing. The venerable organization followed all of that insistence up by announcing that they're about to nuke up to one hundred copy editors and just make the remaining editors work more.

That should go swimmingly.

Today, the "we're SO not failing" paper is being hit with a walkout/protest over the staff reduction.

The Times may not be completely failing, but this isn't really what success looks like.
