Steve Yelvington addresses the departure of Dean Baquet from the LATimes:
I’m sorry to see Dean Baquet lose his job as editor of the Los Angeles Times. I take no joy in the wholesale restructuring of the newspaper business that I see unfolding before us. But it’s real, it’s necessary and it’s driven by economic and technological change beyond our control. This is not the result of evil owners and management conspiring against the good guys, and making speeches about how editors need to stand up against an “irrational era of cost-cutting” is not helping.
