NYT ends 'The Lede' blog

The New York Times' Lede blog is going away, but its "great breaking news content" will "instead be packaged differently and found in the relevant section of our site," Times spokesperson Eileen Murphy tells Poynter.

The Times has been "moving away from blogs over the past year and a half," Murphy said. It ended its Green blog last year, for example.

Assistant Managing Editor Ian Fisher tells Poynter "almost half" of Times blogs will close or merge.
