Brilliant Choice for NY Times "Public Editor"


Clark Hoyt is the next Public Editor of the New York Times. He’s one of the great journalists of this generation, and I fully expect him to look deeply into the paper’s journalism — with fairness and toughness — in ways that illuminate the journalism of the world’s most important news organization. The Times will be vastly better in the end for this hire.

UPDATE: Not everyone shares my opinion of Hoyt, to put it mildly. Unfortunately I’ve only heard from people who don’t seem inclined to make their views known publicly.

(Note: I own a small amount of NYT stock.)
