Salt Lake City Tribune Dumps NYT Columnists, Including Paul Krugman

New York Times columnists have been dumped by the Salt Lake City Tribune.

"As with all agonizing decisions in the world of newspaper shrinkage, this one came after consideration of a tradeoff. It came down to keeping the New York Times News Service or keeping a local news staffer," Tim Fitzpatrick, deputy editor and editorial page editor , of Salt told Wapo.

According to Fitzpatrick, "original reporting on local news fetches more page views than, say, a [Paul] Krugman column hosted on the New York Times sites and elsewhere. ..."

Salt op-ed pages will continue to carry columns from the Washington Post stable — George Will, E.J. Dionne, Eugene Robinson, Charles Krauthammer, Kathleen Parker — from Bloomberg View, from Slate and separately syndicated writers including Leonard Pitts and Rich Lowry.
