WaPo: The Washington Times, Hunting For A Bionic Editor-In-Chief

November 8, 2007

Last week the Times announced they were searching for a new EIC. The Post has a breakdown of the job description:

“articulate and execute . . . the mission of the paper and Web site . . . Support and contribute to the strategic vision of the company . . . Serve as ‘master’ of the tone and voice for the paper and Web site . . . Maintain an awareness of and respond to market trends/needs identified through market research. Use Web analytics to measure success of Web content and modify approach accordingly . . . Build and maintain a collaborative and productive relationship with the President/Publisher regarding vision, mission, goals and objectives, while fostering church/state separation.”

Good gravy. And it goes on. And on. And on.

This may be a sign that there are too many journalists.
