The Newsonomics of The New York Times’ Innovators’ Dilemmas
Posted: 5/23/2014 | By: Ken Doctor | Newsonomics
When the smoke has finally cleared from the Jill Abramson firing,
we’ll be left with one big question: What will The New York Times’
digital future look like under new executive editor Dean Baquet?
The Times’ episodic swan dives into soap opera (the Janet Robinson
termination, the controversy around Mark Thompson’s naming, this current
exercise in public self-flagellation) provide entertainment for some,
but they distract from the bigger questions facing both the Times and
our times: how to produce and pay for excellent journalism.
