The alienation has become so severe that the legacy staff have a secret name for the new team: “The Others,” according to several insiders.
The pre-Min journalists live in a strange purgatory (none will be named in this post, but information came from several places), where they have little say and less contact with the new team. The painful word from inside the newsroom at THR is that Min (above, left) has little to do with them -- doesn't speak to them, or look people in the eye.
That may be no surprise.
As WaxWord has written about recently, Min has started to implement her plan to take THR to a more consumer, celebrity-focused publication.
Waxman's sources tell her the big loser might be Elizabeth Guider, "still technically the editor [but] she currently functions as a 'glorified reporter,' as one person put it."
