The New York Observer names former Los Angeles Times editor Dean Baquet its Media Mensch 2006 “for [r]efusing to [g]ut [n]ewsroom [p]roduct.” NYO says Baquet “spit into the eye of the hurricane” after giving a speech to managing editors about an “irrational era of cost-cutting.” Baquet resigned as editor of the L.A. Times in November 2006 after he refused to make cuts to his newsroom. NYO notes the point of Baquet’s resignation is that “[t]he danger facing the news industry is not defeat. The danger facing the news industry is surrender.”
