Interesting exchange between Koch Industries PR and the New York Times’ ombudsman Art Brisbane over the Times consistently negative coverage. The whole thing is worth reading, but Brisbane’s bracing honestly in this e-mail put a smile on my face:
This brings forward another ingredient in this situation: The Times’s audience. That audience consists of New Yorkers, by and large a liberal population, and national readers, many of whom select The Times because it mirrors their views.
I remain steadfastly opposed to the paper proffering only liberal perspectives in news coverage. But in the opinion-based features of the paper, The Times is within its right to do this. In my view, it makes for predictable and sometimes very dull reading. But others apparently don’t agree.
