Amazon Spars With The Times Over Investigative Article - The New York Times

A discouraging dialogue with the NYT executive editor, especially after Was Portrayal of Amazon’s Brutal Workplace on Target?, a constructively critical perspective from the NYT's own public editor, was published in mid-August

"It was the kind of sparring between a newspaper and the subject of an article that once might have taken place in private. Instead, both men, who have access to huge audiences of their own, published their posts on Medium, a site for essays and storytelling that is open to the public.

The spat took place two months after the publication of the article, which, with more than five million page views, is among The Times’s most-read pieces of the year. The debate, a spokeswoman for The Times said, prompted a fresh flood of readers to the original article."
