Arthur Sulzberger Jr.: The New York Times Is Not Sinking

As Adweek points out, a question and answer session doesn’t always bring out the best in us. Such was the case during The New York Times’ annual meeting, which began with Arthur Sulzberger Jr. talking about how great the company was doing, and ended with this amusing moment:

Perhaps most pressing was this question: Is the New York Times literally sinking? A concerned shareholder inquired about the New York Times’ printing plant, built in College Point, Queens, on what, in the questioner’s view, amounted to ‘a swamp,’ asking, ‘Has the building sunk at all?’ After much laughter, executives confirmed that the Times has not sunk. Not yet.

We think answering that question stung a little more than the typical weird questions that the Times’ officials have to answer.
