Clark Hoyt’s Last Column is Coming This Weekend

Last weekend New York Times public editor Clark Hoyt gave his column over to Jill Abramson to talk about blogs. This weekend he will say goodbye.

It’s been a wild ride for Mr. Hoyt!

“I don’t have any regrets about it. It has been fascinating and endlessly interesting,” Mr. Hoyt told Media Matters during a recent interview.

He was The Times’ third public editor since the position was created after the paper’s Jason Blair scandal.

Mr. Hoyt described himself as a “shock absorber.” O.K., sure.

How will we remember him? Choire Sicha and Tom Scocca summed up his reign pretty well, we thought.
