Because it can't predict next year's ad market, the company won't provide financial forecasts.

The question is why advertisers don't want their ads in the NYT. Does Jayson Blair ring a bell?

Because management doesn't have a good grasp on reality, the company can't provide financial, or any other, forecasts much less recognize truth.

There, that's better.

Where is the NYT's plan to regain market share? They need to withdraw from the war on Bush and redeploy their assets in more profitable endeavors. The length of this financial slide puts them in a quagmire. Where's their intelligence on future ad revenue? Have they been lying about their future prospects? We all know their credibility is in the tank - how will they turn their poll numbers around? Inquiring people want to know.

The declining profit outlook underscores the difficulty The Times is having as advertisers shift to the Internet.

Which is due to readership dropping like a rock everywhere outside of the DNC/MSM.

So the NYT can predict with smug confidence the outcome of the war in Iraq, with its myriad of variables, but it can't predict its own ad revenue for the coming year?

I note the article doesn't mention that the Times' earnings per share dropped about 50% from this same period last year.

hmmm , if the times keeps the employees they lose money, if the fire them, they lose money.
Why won't the TIMES admit the reason for their woes is that no one is buying their worthless liberal fishwrap?

They should just merge with the DNC and cut the costs of duplicating the same garbage.

I wonder how much the editorial board will pay itself.
