Henriques, a Business Reporter for the Times since 1991, Eric Dash, another Business Reporter and Bob Harris, Deputy Editor for The New York Times Book Review, have all taken the paper’s offers.

As with several from the previous group, Henriques will continue to contribute to the Times, albeit on a limited basis.

Four Columns, Four Writers, and a ‘Written By’: The NYT Attempts to Put the Credit Crisis in Context

nyt4clmn.pngSome of you may have noticed the rather thick byline on today’s New York Times four column-wide, front-page story about the last 36 hours of the credit crisis. Multiple bylines are not unusual on reported pieces, however, generally when other reporters contribute to a story they are mentioned at the end. What caught our eye this time was the phrasing of the byline: “This article was reported by Andrew Ross Sorkin, Diana B. Henriques, Edmund L. Andrews and Joe Nocera. It was written by Mr. Nocera.” [emphasis ours]

A quick search through the Times database reveals that the phrasing is unusual at best: it’s only been used a handful of times and almost always for a “news analysis” piece. What also caught our eye was the timing of this story. Normally, these sort of round-up, analysis pieces are reserved for the Sunday Times (notwithstanding the long and glorious era of R.W. Apple) but one supposes with the super accelerated news cycle of the past three weeks, every second counts.
