Vanity Fair Profile of NY Times Boss

new-york-times-0905-01If you haven’t read Mark Bowden’s profile of New York Times owner Arthur Sulzberger Jr., here’s the LINK. It’s a great portrait, with telling details and anecdotes. A masterful write-around: Sulzberger did not cooperate. Perhaps he should have. Bowden portrays the Times heir as a nice guy with a naive belief that superior journalism will triumph in the end, who has driven the paper into the ditch. Bowden’s condemnation of Sulzberger’s business prowess seems a little unfair as nobody seems to have figured out how to keep newspapers afloat. A great read.
