One of my students, Jenna Giarletta, spent a day at the New York Times shadowing an editor for an assignment and wrote about it at the The Purchase Brick. She got to go into the editors’ afternoon meeting. She writes:
The meeting started when they connected via conference call to D.C. A pull-down projector screen on a round table was at the front of the room. Editors pitching stories sat at the table, while those who didn’t sat at the surrounding tables and chairs. The editors went around the table and described the stories they were working on. That morning, top stories were the impending stimulus package approval and employees for Mayor Bloomberg living in luxury.
