To the Times's new Public Editor: Get up to speed on Atlantic Yards

Atlantic Yards Report

Norman Oder pens a letter to the latest Public Editor of The New York Times. Here's a snippet.

I know, I know. As a new Public Editor, you only look forward, not back. But you should know that the Times, in editorial, op-ed, and news coverage of Atlantic Yards, has not come close to meeting its standards.

Your predecessors as Public Editors have not distinguished themselves regarding Atlantic Yards, either offering weak defenses of the newspaper or ignoring issues completely.
