Goodbye New York Times? Staffers Set To Walk Out

June 29, 2017

newyorktimesEditorial staffers at The New York Times will stage a walk-out from the newsroom Thursday afternoon to protest potential layoffs and staff reductions, according to an announcement from their union.

“New York Times editors, reporters and staff will come together to leave the newsroom and their offices in protest of management’s elimination of copy editors,” reads the NewsGuild of New York announcement.

“After a year and a half of uncertainty about their futures, New York Times editors and staff have expressed feelings of betrayal by management. The staff has been offered buyouts and if a certain number of buyouts is not reached, layoffs will ensue for the editorial staff and potentially reporters as well.”

Earlier this week, NewsGuild President Grant Glickson penned an open letter to New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet to share how the union feels about the layoffs, calling it a “humiliating process” and noting that the number of editors being let go “dumbfoundingly unrealistic.”

    Since the NYT became the Democratic Propaganda Press, nobody believes a word they read, but the stockholders soon will see the value of their stock falling before they try to correct this mistake.

  • thomas givens says:

    GOOD BYE NEW YORK TIMES. Fake news has closed your doors. America does not buy your style.

  • PPTA says:

    The far left just don’t get it, and never will. those of us who have always worked hard, paid our own way, are not the extreme far right. We are simply in the middle, we are the working people. The far left demands that we share what we have HONESTLY made with them, yet we get nothing. The far left at the NYT does not get it at all. People that are readers just do not want their brand of news. Readers want honesty, not the screwy opinions that Liberals have.

    The liberals at the NYT, Target, GE, etc. would rather see these “institutions” go belly-up than change course and be profitable. Former GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt left GE with a debt of 31 billion dollars, but his MSNBC and NBC propaganda networks are still being funded by GE, the company he hijacked for political purposes. After they use these companies, they destroy them to help bring down capitalism.

    1. The Redhawk says:

      BUT will they actually WAKE UP?

  • Allan Scott says:

    Let them all walk out and stay out. I’d love to see the NY Times go belly-up and disappear! Talk about a worthless rag sheet just like the Washington Post and a few others.

    1. ArcticGrayling says:

      Nobody with half a brain would miss them, that’s for sure.

      1. The Redhawk says:

        Just effete elites and Pretend Academics and Phony “intellectuals”

    2. The Redhawk says:

      Can WAPO be far Behind?? It seems that MSM PRESSTITUTES are on the ROPES

  • Luke says:

    It’s KARMA for all the fake news and lies about President Trump

    1. Dee says:

      Luke I think you’re right . Once Again Trump was correct when he said the NY times was failing ! I bet there’s more to follow . It’s Finally Obvious what Many of Us have been seeing with Most All of these Fake News outlets . Lies only sell to the ignorant who want to hear what they want , not what’s correct !

    This should be a reassuring fact that your positions at this company are not needed. This being a FREE country companies have the ability to hire and fire at will. If you are not performing the duties needed for the company to survive then you will be let go or replaced. Now for the media’s problems this could be a correction taking place. If you produce a product or service the American public does not want you will go out of business. This is a GOOD thing because it keeps the best floating to the top. When bad ideas or practices occur in the business place it is a good thing they fail. This has always been the American way of business. Politics on the other hand can cause bad products and/or bad behaviors to survive.

  • Rick D. says:

    I hope thee NYT does fold up shop!! This liberal rag has ZERO credibility and is only read by the zealots who want to undermine Trump. If they go, then that’s one less “fake news” to be concerned about!!

  • goldie says:

    Oh, poor babies. It’s so humiliating to go from puppeteer who manipulates the country to out of work bum. Is the lying business failing?
