New York Times Public Editor is a Fan of Facts

Arthur Brisbane, the New York Times’ public editor who wackily questioned if the paper should publish facts, has moved on. Margaret Sullivan is now in his spot, and notably, her first blog post deals with the handling of truth. Sullivan is overwhelmingly in favor of telling the truth and making sure the paper gets things right, so we can all exhale.

The new public editor praises some pieces that have challenged the validity of reports, thanks Jay Rosen for making fact-checking a big issue, and then — well, then she takes a tiny jab at Brisbane:

Whatever the conclusions, whatever the effectiveness, of challenging facts, the idea that we have to debate the necessity of doing so strikes me as absurd.

Right on.
