Springtime for Halibut

I like NYT gossip columnist Campbell Robertson's post-narrative style. Since the NYT is never going to be able to compete with Page Six for gossip, why not let the talented Mr. Robertson write about politics? It's got to be better than what they have now.

Mickey Kaus links to Steven Barton who references a Daily News column by Lloyd Grove reporting (try saying that three times fast) on rumors that a "dump Pinch" movement is sweeping the NYT's newsroom. That would be a step in the right direction, but I'm not holding my breath. I don't know anything about the Sulzberger family's internal dynamics, but I doubt that they are quite willing to break out the long knives just yet. (Now if NYT's stock price continues to decline into, say, the mid-teens, all bets are off.)
