Poynter needs a clue

Most of what needs to be said about the great Poynter-Romenesko flap has been said already. I will add that if the hed above is an example of the new! improved! way of doing things, someone needs to go back to the drawing board.

No online newcomer is going to become the "conservative New York Times." We already have a conservative New York Times. It's called the New York Times.

If the Poynter Institute has joined the credulous ranks of those who see the NYT as the home of the Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy (press division), it's going to fall very quickly -- and deservedly -- from the ranks of must-see-daily sites.
