After 17 months of cooperation on dozens of stories, The NYT has declared in a statement that it will no longer answer any questions from The NYTPicker.
Responding to The NYTPicker’s latest email to the NYT — in advance of our most recent post on the paper’s health-care blogger Uwe Reinhardt — we got this statement from Robert Christie, the paper’s new senior vice president of corporate communications:
“It is the policy of The New York Times not to respond to bloggers or journalists who refuse to identify themselves and/or their affiliation.”
This statement from Christie followed a series of emails in which Christie asked, twice, for us to “identify yourself to me,” and jovially asked us to “call me Bob.”
