Two Editors Leave The New York Times for Bloomberg View

Today Jeff Bercovici ponders the brewing feud between The New York Times and Bloomberg View, and in his post drops this bit of knowledge:

[Losing David Shipley] was enough of a blow to the Times, where Shipley is held in high esteem for his ability to coax op-ed contributions from prominent and diverse personages. But the hurt got worse when Shipley turned around and hired two of his deputies, Mary Duenwald and Toby Harshaw, to come with him.

It’s hard to argue with Duenwald and Harshaw leaving when we all know how much Bloomberg is paying people. But will the money be enough to satisfy them should no one pay any attention to Bloomberg View? We’ve never slept on a pile of one hundred-dollar bills, but it sure does sound comfy.
