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

  •  This is about competition. (none)
    The Times is hoping to challenge the WSJ's success in charging for online access.

    Only $$$$ will determine whether or not the venture will be successful and therefore, continued.

    As sad as it is, fellow reality-based residents, losing our references and links is just an supplementary bonus to the corporate owners, who didn't appreciate our raving about the last few liberal voices still working in media.

    I've also watched the progression of the "most emailed articles" as it has descended into real estate, gardening, and beauty tips.  

    Here's the bottom line:  if the venture produces capital, they'll continue.

    I prefer not to subscribe (particularly since I have access through other sources), but that won't stop me from voicing views that I'm sure most conservatives would prefere to have behind a "firewall."

    You can bet Krugman has a view on this, and he may very well address it soon.

    •  It works for the WSJ (none)
      because many, if not most, of those paying online are either doing it with their company's money or writing it off as a business expense.

      The Republicans want to cut YOUR Social Security benefits.
