After revealing that the New York Times has decided to pull the plug on The Lede, the Poynter media reporter followed with a second item. For that one, he got comment confirming that there will be more nytimes.com blogs shutting down in the near future:

[Assistant managing editor Ian] Fisher declined to name which blogs would get the hook next, but he said, “There’s little chance that our marquee blogs, ones like DealBook, Well, Bits, will be going anywhere anytime soon.”

Robert Mackey Returns to The New York Times

Robert Mackey, the former editor of the New York Times’ The Lede blog, is returning to the paper, after a very short stint with The Guardian‘s stateside team. The announcement was just made by Jim Roberts, the Times’ Assistant Managing Editor, on Twitter.

Mackey was only with The Guardian for one month, so whatever the Times offered must have been substantial. Or maybe things just weren’t working out there.

The Guardian Comes Stateside

The Guardian is finally, officially, stateside. The online version, that is. Back in March word spread that the celebrated paper would be expanding and basing operations in New York, and today it unveiled the new United States news homepage, Guardiannews.com.

As reported, Janine Gibson is overseeing the site. Gibson has been with the Guardian since 1998, and says that the site will grow slowly but surely.

“The site will be a gradual build which will allow us to monitor audiences and grow according to behaviour and what our users want — we’re starting small but thinking big. It’s fantastic to know that we will have the freedom to innovate and experiment with new forms of digital journalism with the full support of the Guardian brand behind us.”

The U.S. Guardian is also getting a little New York help: Robert Mackey, of The New York Times’ The Lede blog, is joining the site soon.
