The NYT’s famous letter to its readers after their historic blunder and debacle, to: rededicate .. to the fundamental mission of .. journalism.
Wow! What a realization!
Question: What was or is their mission so far, then? Was it something else than ‘Journalism’? Were not we told that they are the bastion of the J word?
More question: Didn’t we know all these already? For whom are they writing the letter? For their disillusioned readers?
