I haven’t been following the drama too closely but from the way outside it looks like a career changing move, shifting gears towards another project. The short stay at the NYT leads me to think that — a stepping stone towards something better, with a controversial exit with flair and binary cheering and jeering squads lending credence to my hypothesis.
But, I’m reminded too that I’m jaded and not everything in the world is about SPIN and optics.
In the world of strong opinions and publicity, though, it’s hard not to consider spin and optics into the mix. But maybe there’s more to it. I’m rather surface about this sort of thing.
I’m sure, as usual, I’m missing deeper things and I’ll stand down.
