Loss making New York Times is planning to intensify its global warming propaganda

The loss making New York Times is planning to intensify its global warming scare propaganda:

The New York Times is looking for a climate change editor

Drone footage that shows Greenland melting away. Long narratives about the plight of climate refugees, from Louisiana to Bolivia and beyond. A series on the California drought. Color-coded maps that show how hot it could be in 2060.
The New York Times is a leader in covering climate change. Now The Times is ramping up its coverage to make the most important story in the world even more relevant, urgent and accessible to a huge audience around the globe.
We are looking for an editor to lead this dynamic new group. We want someone with an entrepreneurial streak who is obsessed with finding new ways to connect with readers and new ways to tell this vital story.
The coverage should encompass: the science of climate change; the politics of climate debates; the technological race to find solutions; the economic consequences of climate change; and profiles of fascinating characters enmeshed in the issues.
The coverage should include journalism in a variety of formats: video, photography, newsletters, features, podcasts, conferences and more. The unit should make strategic decisions about which forms are top priorities and which are not.
The climate editor will collaborate with many others throughout the newsroom, but will operate apart from the current department structure, with no print obligations. --


To Apply

Applicants should submit a resume, examples of previous work, and a memo outlining their vision for coverage to Dean Baquet and Sam Dolnick by Sept. 19. This vision is the most important part of the application. It should be specific and set clear priorities. Some important questions to wrestle with:
  • What audiences should we be focusing on?
  • How will our coverage fit into their lives, and how will they experience it?
  • How will we distinguish our coverage from other journalism in this space?
  • What will be the main vehicles for the coverage? Features? News? Videos?
  • Should there be a signature voice attached to our climate coverage? Who?
  • How will you make a difficult subject interesting and accessible?
  • What stories are we willing not to do?
  • What should the team look like to get it done?
  • This non-Guild position is open to internal and external candidates. Applications should be sent to nytrecruit@nytimes.com.

    PS
    I´ll bet that the well paid job goes to the person who answers the penultimate question by demanding that the NYT should, if possible, even more emphatically refuse to publish any stories criticizing the global warming hysteria ...

    So Silly. The alarmists have no evidence for ANY of their claims. They cannot even provide their fearless leader, Obama with anything helpful.

    Obama points to two receding glaciers in Alaska as evidence of human activity causing global warming when there are other growing glaciers, both in Alaska and elsewhere. Not only that, one of the two glaciers, "Exit" by name, has been receding since 1730. That's a CENTURY before co2 level began rising.
    A LOL response would normally be adequate, but, actually, it's not so funny because taxpayers are being forced to finance this drivel.
