Tina Brown weighs in at the end of the week on The Times’ Judy Chronicles:
Readers would rather have waited and gotten a story they could at least understand. Newsrooms, however, can’t handle that kind of old-fashioned restraint. The blogs are baying to be fed, the competition is kicking their butt on the story, the stock price is down. “Transparency” turns into a combination of partial truths and morose institutional venting that makes everyone, including the readers, feel worse about themselves and the newspaper than they did before.
Wha? Which readers would rather have waited. Name two. Somebody read the whole thing and explain what she’s trying to say, which seems to be not much more than Miller said.
