New york times op ed submission
Did the New York Times commit a major journalistic mistake? According to legendary Watergate sleuth Bob Woodward, the publication of an anonymous op-ed by a “senior official in the Trump administration” was an error in judgment. Had the decision to publish the op-ed come to him, Woodward told CBS News, he “wouldn’t have used it.”Story Continued Below Nor is Woodward alone. Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik agrees with Woodward. Without the author’s identity being made public, Zurawik notes, the “op-ed massively adds to the cesspool of confusion about the most important story in American life right now.” And Nate Silver, editor of FiveThirtyEight, tweeted that though “it’s a complicated case” his “view is that this [op-ed] was too hot/complicated/important for an op-ed and should have been turned over to the newsroom to handle.” It all adds up to a growing consensus among journalists and critics that … [Read more...] about The Times Would Have Been Crazy Not to Publish That Op-Ed

Levine July 16, 2018 Good morning on this bright-and-balmy Monday. Have you ever wondered what those small plastic circles were on New York City streets? They are asphalt tags, “A-tags” for short. They identify who dug up the street and for what purpose, which comes in handy if there’s a problem later on. Light blue A-tags indicate work done on behalf of Con Edison, but in some cases, the important information — the contractor’s ID number and the year — has worn away. The A-tags are just one of many mysterious objects that we’re on the hunt for in New York City. But we need your help. For our F.Y.I. series, which answers readers’ questions about New York City, we will be researching the objects that you’ve … [Read more...] about New York Today: What Is This Object?

Here, we explain how couples land wedding announcements in The New York Times. Wedding announcements at The Times are as old as the paper itself: The debut issue of the newspaper, on Sept. 18, 1851, also debuted “Weddings” — at the time a single line proclaiming the union of Sarah Mullett and John Grant. Both were from prominent families, and for more than 100 years the section more or less stuck to that rule, remaining the purview of privileged society figures.
