  • Certainly one of the NYT columnists must have noticed that the management is playing a dangerous game with our election.#
  • When are they going to write a column raising the question of how non-transparent the process is, and how dangerous it has become. #
  • Might take a bit of courage to do that, and being willing to put your career on the line, for all of us.#
  • Just asking the question, even if they fired you, seems as big an issue as the question raised by the special prosecutor re Biden's age?#
  • I've been a columnist for a somewhat major publication myself, and I promise you, if I were witnessing what's going on at the NYT, I'd submit the column, and if they didn't run it, I'd offer it to their competitors, and if they wouldn't take it, I'd run it publicly on a blog, and say that they wouldn't run it. #
  • You can't really witness something like this without speaking up. They gave you the platform, you should use it.#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
