Bob Herbert to Leave The TimesBy JEREMY W. PETERS
Mr. Herbert’s resignation was announced in a memo to Times staff members on Friday. His last column will appear in the paper on Saturday.
Mr. Herbert, who started his Times column in 1993, was known for his combative style, blunt language and progressive politics. In a message accompanying the announcement, Mr. Herbert, who is 66, said he was eager to move on to a new form of writing.
We have so few progressive voices, and African American men in position in journalism. Don’t leave it all to those people please.
The problem is the movie. It is not very good from the reviews I have read.
Based on her interview with Charlie Rose Rula Jebreal (the author of the book Miral) is now sleeping with her director Julian Schnabel. Bad move.
