NYT invades L.A. by video screen

While the suits and editors continue to discuss how best to gear up in the Los Angeles market, the New York Times on Monday takes over content on 850 screens in L.A., New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Boston. The screens are located in coffee shops, casual restaurants and airport newsstands. Under a deal with RMG Networks, the screens will be rebranded with the New York Times name and content.

Story that keeps giving: The NYT has run a second correction of its Jan. 14 story about the Beverly Hils shop Lily et Cie, this time acknowledging that the age of an Hermes coat was misstated: "It dates from the 2007-8 season, not from the 1970s." Previously, the paper admitted that a dog described in the story as "omnipresent" had, in fact, "died some time ago."
