New York Times Boss to Journalists: Don’t Use Twitter to Vet Grievances

From a New York Post story by Ariel Zilber headlined “New York Times boss to journalists: Don’t use Twitter to ‘vet grievances”:

Joe Kahn, the New York Times executive editor who took over the Gray Lady’s top job on Tuesday, thinks journalists should not use Twitter to “vet grievances.”

Kahn, who succeeds Dean Baquet at the helm of the influential broadsheet, also lamented that journalists were avoiding “lightning-rod type” stories due to fear of a backlash they would receive from readers on social media.
