Newspaper says it's still hiring bright new talent

The New York Times continues to dwindle away. Many of the venerable newspaper's biggest and brightest have since left, or have announced their imminent departure. It's being seen as a sad comment on the imminent extinction of print newspapers.

Brian Stelter, who had made an appearance as a guest anchor on CNN's 'Reliable Sources' the past few months had all the while insisted he had no intention of exiting the Times. It now appears he's out to conquer electronic media next.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Three high-profile names have since tendered their resignations. Media columnist Brian Stelter, Chief Political Correspondent Matt Bai and Sunday Magazine Editor-in-Chief Hugo Lindgren have said they will be pursuing other projects very shortly.

Lindgren was long believed by colleagues as being on the way out. He had fallen out of favor with Executive Editor Abramson. Stelter, who had made an appearance as a guest anchor on CNN's "Reliable Sources" the past few months had all the while insisted he had no intention of exiting the Times. It now appears he's out to conquer electronic media next.

In the meantime, Bai is leaving to go to Yahoo! News. He will be under the guiding light of yet another Times defector, Editorial Director Megan Liberman.

Liberman had made another high-profile raid on the Times two weeks ago and recruited tech columnist David Pogue. Rick Berke, a former top Washington editor and one-time ally of Abarmson, recently jumped to Politico as executive editor.

In an emotional, tearful moment, Lindgren told reporters that he was leaving at the end of this year. News of his departure was first reported by Capital New York.

The irony of the situation is that at one time, The new York Times was a career destination where people generally ended their career. In the words of a former staffer, the New York Times is now just yet a "pit stop" on the path to greener pastures. Abramson is having particular problems holding onto high-profile columnists.

The Times at this point is still humming, "don't worry, be happy."

"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," said Times spokeswoman Eileen Murphy.

"At the same time, we are still hiring great new talent - Jonathan Martin and Jason Horowitz, among them - and Jill remains committed to ensuring that our newsroom has the best and strongest mix of journalistic talent."
