From "Margaret Sullivan...the fifth public editor appointed by The New York Times. [Who] writes about the Times and its journalism in a frequent blog – the Public Editor’s Journal — and in a twice-monthly print column in the Sunday Review section. The public editor’s office also handles questions and comments from readers and investigates matters of journalistic integrity.":
"When he came to work at The Times, Mr. Silver gained a lot more visibility and the credibility associated with a prominent institution. But he lost something, too: the right to act like a free agent with responsibilities to nobody’s standards but his own."I anxiously await Ms. Sullivan's public dressing-down of David Brooks for his ritual commission of public fraud approximately twice a week, every week, for the last 10 years.
