Shame apparently works


Byron Calame, the New York Times' "public editor" has taken to the web and (apparently) print to upbraid Alessandra Stanley's lie about Geraldo Rivera, and opinion editor Gail Collins's failure to follow the Times policy on corrections. Calame has been relentlessly criticized here and elsewhere for his previous failure to comment adequately on his employer's journalistic misbehavior.

Now that the New York Times is cutting newsroom staff, how long will he last?
