NYT’s Exec Dean Baquet Dumps Copy Editor’s Desk

If you’re frustrasted – er, frustrated – from reading all the errors in your New York Times stories you’re not alone.

Now the copy editors at the New York Times have been fired. All for the sake of cost cutting and their sudden fascination with “New Media.”

Executive Editor Dean Baquet – the Torquemada of newspaper publishing – thinks that cohesive news stories can be produced without the time-honored position of the copy editor.

Good luck with that, Deano.

It was just last week that Sarah Palin brought legal action against The Times for their sloppy editorial – no doubt written by a twenty-something – that wrongly described Palin’s despicable gunsight campaign ads as directly targeting Rep. Gabby Giffords rather than her district. (The Times had to correct the editorial.)

The New York Times under Dean Baquet has been in a steady slide toward sloppy muck and his wholesale firings of dedicated, vitally important staff members underscores Baquet’s schoolboy joy of dismantling what was once the greatest newspaper in these United States.

Note: And while Baquet makes these supposedly cost-savings moves, the same day’s NYT’s paper reviews a $377,000 Ferrari station wagon made for the average family to drop off the kids to school…

How’s THAT for the good liberal disconnect? Fire the workers then feed the readers their Ferrari fantasies.

Oh, shut up and go back to your little smartphone screens…
