I had to ask

I really didn’t expect the New York Times to tell me what it did with the employee who sent an email intended for 300 people to over 8 million home-delivery subscribers — and made national headlines because of it — but I thought I’d try.

Was the employee transferred, fired or disciplined in another way because of the error? I asked New York Times spokeswoman Eileen Murphy. She responded:

We’re not going to comment on this situation beyond what we said last week. We regret that the message was sent in error by The New York Times.

As a matter of policy, we do not discuss personnel matters.
