Whatever Gets You Through the Night

Hey, if that’s how you justify not reporting — or at least not illustrating — the news, well, we all have to find a way to sleep at night.

Flashback: In 1992, New York Magazine reported that Times publisher Pinch Sulzberger “told a crowd of people that alienating older white male readers means ‘we’re doing something right.’”

Compare Baquet’s email above with Sulzberger’s quote, and you start to get a sense of how their newspaper defines the words “objective journalism.”

Update 1/9/15: Bacquet calls USC professor an “asshole” today on professor’s Facebook page after his criticism of Bacquet not publishing the Charlie Hebdo cartoons. Confirmed: Gray Lady Regresses to Infantilism.
