Cronkite blunder a revealing look inside New York Times - Los Angeles Times
The New York Times, in short, needs to enforce its high standards more uniformly, regardless of whose byline appears at the top of the story.

No. 3: Redesigns roll out at a stunningly fast pace - SND Update
"As an industry we have a tendency to go from “we refuse to participate” to a “we will be the best at…” stance on anything new or different. And we have a reluctance to evolve and improve when things are going well – probably the best time to consider changes that will improve our products."
