History and Future of The New York Times
Daniel Schwarz talked about his book, Endtimes?: Crises and Turmoil at the New York Times, 1999-2009. In his book, Mr. Schwarz explores the inner workings of The Times during a pivotal decade, providing an in-depth history of the paper’s transformation from the age of print into the digital age. His investigation draws on more than 40 one-on-one interviews with Times staff, including the publisher Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., every living executive editor, masthead figures, section editors, and reporters. In his book he concludes of this iconic New York institution in transition that “It is the worst newspaper in the world, except for all the others.” Professor Schwarz responded to questions from members of the audience. close
