Gray Lady taunts newcomer

Published on .

[Phoenix] While attendees at the Association of National Advertisers meeting generally shared best practices with competitors, Bill Keller, executive editor of The New York Times used podium time as a luncheon speaker Oct. 7 to joust with The Wall Street Journal.

Mr. Keller said the Times beefed up its newspaper in anticipation of the Saturday edition of The Journal, "but after seeing it our reaction was 'Huh?'"

He added, "They haven't broken any big stories on Saturday yet."

Mr. Keller noted that "The question before [the Saturday edition] came out was, 'Who needs it?' So far, they haven't answered that question yet."
