New York Times

Mathew Ingram at GigaOm makes a good point about the missing ingredient when news publishers attempt to innovate in The New York Times innovation report is great, but it left out one important thing. They all talk about how they support ‘quality editorial’ but this is often little more than paying lip service to the idea.

I saw this when Fairfax purchased IDG New Zealand. Managers constantly talked of a commitment to quality journalism, while simultaneously cutting budgets, then pressuring editors and publishers to take editorial short cuts.
