Off the Record is a daily email newsletter reporting on the media industry in New York City, published by Gabriel Snyder, the former editor of The New Republic, The Atlantic Wire, and Gawker.

There is plenty of discussion about the media these days, but most of the outlets that employed full-time media reporters have either cut back or transformed the beat into an outpost in the political culture wars. There’s now a lot that happens inside New York newsrooms and board rooms that doesn’t get much, if any, reporting beyond a press release and a tweetstorm.

While that’s bad for media gossip fiends, it’s also bad for the community of people who work in New York media. It’s time to bolster the bonds between people who actually care about what gets published each day and, of course, the politics and machinations behind the scenes that went into it.
