WSJ graphics reporter Levitt departs due to newsletter
Wall Street Journal graphics reporter Daniel Levitt writes that he has left the paper after the standards committee complained about his paid newsletter, Inside the Newsroom, which posts jobs openings.
Levitt writes, “Well, thanks to each and every one of you, I’ve been able to get by for the past few weeks. But I can’t lie, it’s squeaky bum time in terms of making this newsletter work financially.
“Right now we have more than 2,000 jobs and internships listed in the U.S., UK and Canada. Each time one of you emails to tell me you found a job or have an interview because of ITN, it warms my little heart.
“Now that the shackles are off, I want to list even more jobs in even more countries. Especially in those who need journalism more than ever. And I want to share more of my experiences to hopefully help the industry improve.”
