Arthur Brisbane, New York Times Public Editor, to Leave Paper

Arthur Brisbane, The New York Times’ Public Editor, is leaving his post in September. The Washington Post reports that Brisbane made the decision to leave last fall. Brisbane was the fourth Public Editor appointed by the Times.

Brisbane will surely be remembered for his ridiculously awful column that asked if the New York Times should report facts. If you missed it, do yourself a favor and go back and give it a read. It’s truly an amazing piece.
