Last one for the day, from CNN Money:

The New York Times’ searing expose on workplace conditions at Amazon has been hailed by some as a piece of exemplary journalism.

The Times’ public editor Margaret Sullivan, however, had a more lukewarm reaction to the piece on Tuesday

“For such a damning result, presented with so much drama, that doesn’t seem like quite enough,” Sullivan wrote.

The full article can be found on CNN Money.

Here is the link to Margaret Sullivan’s post on The Opinion Pages.
