I actually have great admiration for one of the people promoted, Charles Bucher. He’s an exceptionally talented designer.

“As assistant managing editor, my first priority is to improve the sophistication of the paper’s design,” said Bucher. “I am also committed to strengthening newsroom planning, improving newsroom communication and increasing web site partnerships.” (emphasis. added)
