The Newsonomics of David Pogue and the Pujols Effect
Posted: 10/25/2013 | By: Ken Doctor | Nieman Journalism Lab
Divorces can be such fun, especially media divorces.
This week, David Pogue and The New York Times split after 13 years. Last month, The Wall Street Journal couldn’t renew their vows with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher. Over the past year, Nate Silver’s bid adieu to the Times and Andrew Sullivan severed his relationship with The Daily Beast, just months before Tina Brown did likewise.
The terms of disendearment are never announced, and everybody wishes everybody luck in their new ventures.
