A conversation with the New York Times’ top editor Bill Keller on his paper and the radically changing news business.
In the 20th century, the New York Times had the biggest word and usually the last word in American news. The tip-top spot in the American news media.
What about this century, when technology and Tea Partiers are turning a lot of old assumptions and power structures upside-down?
With us today is Bill Keller, executive editor of the New York Times. He’s the top boss. The chief. He’s steering a storied news organization into very choppy seas. Newspapers are failing. Politics are whirling. It’s a good time to talk.
Bill Keller, executive editor of the New York Times. He’s worked at the Times since 1984, and he won a Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of the Soviet Union. He has also served as managing editor and as an Op-Ed columnist.
