New York Times Suspends Andrew Goldman for Twitter Remark

The New York Times has decided to discipline Andrew Goldman, the writer of the “Talk” feature in the Times Magazine, for his Twitter outburst last week. Goldman had drawn criticism for lashing out at a female author when she suggested his material was sexist. Capital New York received an email from the magazine’s editor, Hugo Lindgren, that stated Goldman will keep his job at the Times Magazine, but will be suspended for four weeks.

The decision to take Goldman to task is timely, considering the paper’s standards editor — Philip Corbett — just sent out a memo reminding staffers of the company’s social media guidelines.

In the note — available in full on the public editor’s blog — there is a section mentioning freelancers:

As with all of our ethics guidelines, these principles also apply to freelancers in connection with their work for The Times. Readers do not distinguish among bylines, and regular contributors in particular are closely associated with The Times. Editors have a responsibility to ensure that freelancers understand their obligation to protect The Times’s reputation.

New York Times Writer Incurs Wrath of Public Editor for Sexist Material

Andrew Goldman, the regular contributor for The New York Times Magazine’s “Talk” feature, is getting soundly criticized for what some claim to be a pattern of sexist and misogynistic questions during the interviews he conducts. The latest incident even prompted a response from Margaret Sullivan, the Times’ public editor.

In Goldman’s latest interview, he asks the actress Tippi Hedren if she ever thought about having sex with a director to advance her career. Jennifer Weiner, a published author, noticed Goldman’s question, and took to Twitter to criticize him for it — specifically because she thought he had been sexist in the past. Weiner’s tweet prompted Goldman to tweet back to her that she “would have liked at least to have had opportunity to sleep way to top.” Eventually Goldman apologized, and he has since deleted his Twitter account.

Sullivan noticed the incident, and asked Hugo Lindgren, the editor of the Times Magazine, about it.

Arianna Huffington Talks to The New York Times Magazine

Yeah, we know, more Arianna Huffington? But her interview in this Sunday’s New York Times Magazine is actually pretty funny, so bear with us. Despite being a short exchange, the conversation between her and Andrew Goldman gets testy at several points.

When Goldman expresses disbelief at Huffington insisting that The Huffington Post isn’t a liberal site, Huffington bluntly says, “I’m not trying to tell you anything. I’m telling you things. I’m not trying, O.K.?”

Then, after Huffington explains that she plans on hiring “dozens” of journalists, and Goldman points out that hiring people seems to go against the reasons behind AOL aquiring the site, she flatly replies, “We already had 148 journalists on payroll at The Huffington Post. I don’t know how you can say that.” Oh, snap.

There’s another tension-filled moment, but we’ll let you find that out for yourself. Unless you’ve already reached your monthly Times limit, that is.

Andrew Goldman Takes Over NYT Magazine’s ‘Questions For’ Column

Less than two weeks removed from ousting Deborah Solomon from the role, New York Times Magazine editor Hugo Lindgren has hired Andrew Goldman as her replacement for the “Questions For” column.  Goldman has written Elle’s monthly Cherchez La Femme column for eight years and interviewed countless celebrities about their dating lives.  Goldman will start at NYT Magazine on Mar. 6 and is confident that he will transition well into his new position.

I can certainly interview Donald Rumsfeld as well as I can interview Ashton Kutcher.  No, it’s not gonna be cute boys and cute girls. It’ll be smart guys and smart women.

Goldman added that he will stick to the same format that Solomon used for “Questions For.”  His last Cherchez La Femme column for Elle will run in June.
