The publisher of the New York Times, Arthur O. Sulzberger Jr., does not seem to grasp exactly why so many readers canceled their subscriptions after the paper hired Bret Stephens. Stephens, a columnist with a record of denying and misrepresenting the science behind climate change, then proceeded to publish two separate columns, and an online post, repeating those views.
In a personal note to readers who specifically mentioned Stephens as a reason behind their decision to cancel their subscription, Sulzberger defended the decision and Stephens. “We feel very fortunate to have a principled, independent-minded conservative writer like Bret Stephens join our team,” he wrote.
Sulzberger offers no response to the many scientists, columnists, and readers who were critical of the error-riddled and misleading columns the Times published. At the same time, his tone-deaf letter insists that “some points of view are not welcome” in the Times, including those “denying basic truths about our world.”
They give validation to the notion that we do not have a problem. This is wonderful for those who deny we do – such as this guy:
NYT Warms to Climate Change Skepticism
Never imagining ever having an occasion to reference anything posted in The New York Times as evidence of climate sanity, an April 28 article brings gleeful tears of hope to these jaded eyes.
This is written by Larry Bell a long time Heartland Institute “expert”. You can see much, much more about Bell at desmog blog here.
After checking that maybe you’re somewhat impressed by Bell’s prolific writing but please remember this:
According to a search of Google Scholar, Larry Bell has never published an article in a peer-reviewed journal on the subject of climate. 
After a second of critical thinking that tells me he isn’t much of an expert at all.
So, Yeah, well done NYT – sell your soul for the new subscribers your man Stephens is bringing in!
