NYT: Times Editorial Page Editor Steps Down
By KATHARINE Q. SEELYE
Published: October 12, 2006

Gail Collins, the first woman to run the editorial page of The New York Times, is stepping down Jan. 1 and will be succeeded by Andrew Rosenthal, the deputy editor of the page. Ms. Collins, 60, is taking a leave of absence from the paper to write a book and is to return in July as a columnist on The Timess Op-Ed page.

The Times editorial page has long been regarded as one of the most liberal within the mainstream media, and the change at the top is expected to continue that outlook.

Ms. Collins, who was appointed editor of the page in 2001, has seen us through the horror of 9/11, wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and a time of great political turmoil, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., the papers publisher, said in a statement. She also oversaw a physical expansion from two pages to three on Sundays and instituted editorials for the Sunday papers regional sections covering New York City and its suburbs.

As much as I will miss her leadership, Im thrilled she will be returning to our Op-Ed pages as a columnist, Mr. Sulzberger said. We have missed her voice there.

Mr. Rosenthal, 50, joined The Times in 1987 and was named deputy editorial page editor in 2003. He has served as the papers assistant managing editor, foreign editor and acting national editor, and as a reporter and editor in the Washington bureau....

3. yeah, but they think it has been liberal
If what the NY Times has served up over the past few years has been liberal, can you imagine what the country would look like if they drifted right?
Hasn't being a mouthpiece for Bush and his minions, championing the war and destroying anyone who criticized the little king done enough damage?

4. What they serve up on the editorial page, when I post it...
very often ends up on the Greatest Page, or even on the homepage.

6. Wow, too bad.
She's been a great editor.

But it's a tough job, I imagine.

Still, she should reconsider, methinks.

(Not that it's my business.)
