New York magazine is said to be pursuing Rebecca Dana, most recently a television reporter at The New York Observer. Both sides declined to comment on what’s shaping up as a singularly meta narrative of New York media. The young reporter’s much-reported-on offer at The New York Times was said to have been revised to a three-year trial, allegedly after rumors circulated she’d dissed current Times TV reporter Bill Carter‘s work. Over at the Village Voice, editor David Blum also has sat down with Dana. “I know Rebecca and am a huge admirer of her work. We talked about possibilities at the Voice, but our discussions never reached the point of a job offer,” he wrote in an e-mail.
