NYT: The US Has Never Needed Us More

From the New York Times’ stockholders meeting:

 

2006 Annual Meeting of Stockholders

April 18, 2006
New York, New York

Arthur Sulzberger, Jr.
Chairman, The New York Times Company
Publisher, The New York Times

Janet L. Robinson
President and Chief Executive Officer,
The New York Times Company

Arthur "Pinch" Sulzberger:

Good morning. I am Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., Chairman of The New York Times Company. Welcome to our annual meeting and thank you for your interest in our Company…

<Much self-congratulatory back-patting snipped.>

As Bill Keller told our newsroom yesterday as our Pulitzers were awarded: Prizes don’t always say anything terribly important about the state of our business, but [t]his year’s Pulitzers do, and what they say is: the country has never needed us more than it does today.

Amen.

How’s that for chutzpah ?
