NYT Reminds World That Hirschorn Said It’d Be Dead By May

toldyou.jpgNew York Times Co. chairman Arthur Sulzberger and CEO Janet Robinson have put out a memo celebrating The New York Times‘ survival until June — despite the grim predictions of The Atlantic‘s Michael Hirschorn last year.

“The month of May came and went and, contrary to the prediction of one writer, we did not stop printing The New York Times,” the memo read. “But given all the speculation and incorrect information that has been reported about our Company, we think it is important to create a regular letter written so that you get the facts directly from us — on the record.”

So, look forward to more of these correspondences in the coming months. Today’s explained the ongoing situation at The Boston Globe, but didn’t really add any new news to what has already been reported about the union negotiation saga.
