The new business of Editor & Publisher is business

The return of Editor & Publisher without its two most recognizable writers and editors, Greg Mitchell and Joe Strupp, raised a few red flags that the trade publication would be more about trade and less about news. That and the fact that its was bought by a company that publishes magazines about boats.

In an interview with the New York Times, the new owners confirms that he'll indeed shift the focus away from the news side:
Mr. McIntosh said in an interview that he wanted to shift Editor & Publisher’s focus toward the business and technology of the industry, with less emphasis on what happens in newsrooms.
