Yesterday Hugo Lindgren raised a few eyebrows by hiring Adam Sternbergh away from rival New York magazine. Today Lindgren fired another shot at former boss Adam Moss by adding book critic Sam Anderson to his staff at the New York Times Magazine. Moss, the editor at New York since the end of 2003, did not hide his disappointment with the loss of Anderson in a memo he released to his staff.
It appears as though Moss is getting the Obi Wan Kenobi treatment as Lindgren has taken a nasty Anakin Skywalker-like turn on his mentor. Read Moss’s reaction to Anderson’s move below.
