New York Times webteam nukes the careers of many journalists

Thomas Crampton, formerly of the International Herald Tribune, sez, "The NYT committed most boneheaded move by a web team since the dawn of the Internet:

In merging the International Herald Tribune and New York Times sites, the brilliant New York Times web team deleted all links to every IHT story along with the newspaper's archives.

In other words, they erased my journalism career online.

Anyone following one of the thousands of links from over the years to a specific IHT story is now directed to a generic home page.

Full horror detailed in posting on my blog."
