NY Times’ Keller to Edit New Justice Journalism Project


Bill Keller, the New York Times' former executive editor and current columnist, will leave the paper after three decades to head a nonprofit news organization, reports the Washington Post. Keller will become editor-in-chief of the Marshall Project, a start-up operation that will specialize in criminal-justice reporting.

Keller was editor-in-chief of the Times from 2003 to 2011. The Marshall Project is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that is still being formed. It was started by Neil Barsky, a former Wall Street Journal reporter who became a successful hedge-fund manager. The project is one of a number of digital-only news organizations that have formed in recent years outside of traditional media companies.
