The New York Times has announced that it is going to reduce the number of sections of its newspaper to three.

Me thinks the announcement will soon be met with confirmations from other papers like the Chicago Tribune and Tampa Tribune.

And, I’d wager that this was a strictly business decision without involvement of editorial leaders. And if it is, that means the NYT and others will have lost another great opportunity to redefine its news package in order to provide great journalism in a smaller product, instead of the same-old stuffed into a smaller bag.

What a shame if that is the case.
