NY Times Attempts To Become More Irrelevant

Question: how often do you see NY Times articles featured at Memeorandum or the blogs you read? Not that often anymore. When the Times tried their “Times Select” program, pay-walling certain content, the opinion articles were barely ever featured. They removed the wall, and suddenly Maureen Dowd, Paul Krugman, and the others were showing up. Then the Times moved to their “20 free articles per month” method, and linking went down. And now they want to further show their irrelevance by changing the program up

Beginning in April, visitors to NYTimes.com can access 10 free articles each month, rather than 20.

This change will strengthen our ability to continue providing the world’s most insightful journalism today. It will also support the ongoing development of digital innovations and apps that make The Times an experience you won’t find anywhere else.

Most will opt for “well, other outlets are carrying the same news. I’ll read and link them.”
