Was Portrayal of Amazon's Brutal Workplace on Target? - The New York Times

NYT reporters are keeping its public editor busy lately

"My take: For many months, I’ve heard from readers who believe that The Times seems, at times, out to get Amazon. I wrote a column critiquing The Times’s coverage of the feud between traditional book publishers and Amazon.

On the latest exposé, I’m in agreement with parts of what both Mr. Jarvis and Mr. Mitchell have to say. The story was, as Mr. Mitchell said, hard-edge and direct without being prosecutorial or breathlessly crusading. It gave Amazon its due in some ways, as both a company and an employer. But Mr. Jarvis makes an important point when he says it should have provided more balance and context."
