View Diary: The waning influence of the NYT Times columnists (202 comments)

Comment Preferences

  •  They have the right (none)
    and it will generate some income, but it is self defeating to the extent they see their mission as something in addition to a money making enterprise.

    They could have added value without restricting access to the columns. They could have delayed publication for one day for non-subscribers. They could limit columnist blogs to subscribers. etc etc

    Truthfully,  virtually unlimited access to the archives is worth close to $50 per year (if you have $50 bucks to spare.)

    They should want their hand-selected columnists opinions spread as far and as wide as possible.

    •  The Times, in addition to wanting to influence (none)
      the national political discourse, is also a profit-seeking enterprise.

      They are asking very little, particularly for the largest bloggers who generate revenue through their advertising and can spend some of that for paying for content.

      This speaks more about the bloggers who are willing to lessen their content by refusing to pay.
