I think this has broken the camel's back. I see the AG stepping in this time.
In the meantime economic warfare against the NYT. Probably no one here subscribes to it, but it you do, get rid of it. Same for Boston Globe, which is owned by NYT. Take it a step further and let companies know that if they advertise in the NYT then we'll boycott their products.
I haven't read the NYT for about 40 years, ditto for Boston Globe but I can smell them from about 1500 miles away. NYT stock should go to zero, if people understand it's the enemy within.
