Politics has been dominating the news cycle, especially since the 2016 election. In this final section of the Meet the Media forum, the Times’ approach to covering business and tech is reviewed. In the minds of some readers, the paper may primarily be associated political stories–the Times is working to change that.
Rebecca Blumenstein is Deputy Managing Editor of the New York Times, a post she assumed in 2019. Prior to that she was Deputy Editor in Chief of The Wall Street Journal, the highest-ranking woman to lead the paper’s news organization to date. She’s received numerous awards including overseeing the China team for the Wall Street Journal that won a Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting in 2007.
PRSA-NY hosted the event featuring Rebecca and moderated by Doug Simon, CEO of D S Simon Media.
