Apparently not all The New York Times' senior staffers are interested in "All the News That's Fit to Print," as the paper's motto goes.
Several of them are beating a path out the door. Tuesday saw the departure of media columnist Brian Stelter, Chief Political Correspondent Matt Bai, and Sunday Magazine Editor-in-Chief Hugo Lindgren, the New York Post reports
Stelter is headed for CNN, Bai is going to Yahoo, and Lindgren hasn't announced his future plans.
The three join other high profile Times staffers who have fled the Gray Lady in recent months. That includes Times Editorial Director Megan Liberman and technology columnist David Pogue, who went to Yahoo, Politico reports
"Where once the Times was a destination where people generally ended their career, one departee noted that it has increasingly become a pit stop on the path to greater riches outside the Times — and [Executive Editor Jill] Abramson is having particular problems holding onto high-profile columnists," writes New York Post media columnist Keith Kelly.
The Times itself claims that everything is A-OK.
"Given the size and strength of our staff (we have a newsroom of more than 1,100), it’s inevitable that some very good people might be recruited to other opportunities in what has become a crowded and complicated media marketplace," Times spokeswoman Eileen Murphy told the Post.
