The internal report on innovation at the New York Times.

The New York Times recently completed an internal report that assesses the paper’s difficulties in positioning itself for success in the digital era. The report was leaked and is readily available on the Internet. It’s full of insightful analysis and a great source for anyone interested in the impact the Internet has had on journalism. Joshua Benton, Director of the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard University, wrote an article about the report entitled “The leaked New York Times innovation report is one of the key documents of this media age.” Mr. Benton discussed the report in a program entitled “The internal report on innovation at the New York Times,” which aired on the May 22, 2014 edition of Media Report on Radio National from Australian Public Radio.
