New York Times Treats Its Jerusalem Bureau Chief Like a Child

The New York Times has taken the embarrassing step of providing Jodi Rudoren — the paper’s Jerusalem bureau chief — with a social media watchdog. According to the Times’ public editor, Margaret Sullivan, the move was necessary because Rudoren had used Twitter and Facebook to post some things that got people upset:

…During the Gaza conflict, she wrote one Facebook post in which she described Palestinians as ‘ho-hum’ about the death of loved ones, wrote of their ‘limited lives’ and, in another, said she shed her first tears in Gaza over a letter from an Israeli family.

New York Times Changes Jerusalem Bureau Chief

Ethan Bronner has been replaced by Jodi Rudoren as the New York Times’ Jerusalem Bureau Chief. Politico reports that Bronner will become a Legal Affairs Reporter for the paper’s national desk. Bronner had been Jerusalem Bureau Chief since 2008. Rudoren most recently worked as Education Editor for the Times.

An internal memo from Foreign Editor Joe Kahn and National Editor Sam Sifton that was obtained by Politico lavished praise on Bronner and Rudoren.

Rudoren begins her new position in April.

Darkness Falls Across the Land, NYT Officially Cuts City Section

It’s official. The NYO is reporting that NYT executive editor Bill Keller has sent a memo out to staff confirming the closure of the ever excellent City Section along with a host of other changes including the elimination of fashion spreads in the Sunday Magazine, to name a few.

We will consolidate Sunday Metro area coverage in a new Sunday feature section, which will be a showcase for news and features from the city and beyond. (Metro area breaking news will be incorporated into the A-book.). The new section will include zoned pages for Connecticut, New Jersey, Westchester and Long Island. Joe Sexton and Jodi Rudoren have taken on the project of developing a prototype, and we hope to launch the new section on May 24, replacing the City section and regional weeklies.

The Observer has the full memo here.
