Here's the chart you need to look at. The last two years:

Interesting that almost every spike in volume corresponds with a downtick in price

My heart bleeds.

Wait a minute, no it doesn't.

I was in Barnes and Noble yesterday. A man walked up to be and offered me a free promotional copy of the New York Times. I turned it down.

Why should I have to carry it to the nearest trashcan?

Thanks. I read the dead-tree VF and enjoyed every word.

Just a reminder ...

Quote:
the Times's new publisher, Arthur "Pinch" Sulzberger Jr ... was a sixties anti-war activist who famously declared that in a confrontation between an American and a North Vietnamese soldier he'd want to see the American get shot."
Unquote.

The publisher of the N.Y. Times has committed treason. Congress should change the penalty for treason to death by hanging in a public place, televised live.

I think I can extrapolate an upward trend from the past few days data. Sort of like predicting global warming trends.

Just checked...

It appears they have lost over $3bil in stock value.

It doesn't compare to the DotCom loss, but $3bil is still more than I have.

Talking about the U.S. government spending when it was around $500 bil a year!

We have had deficits that large!

At the current rate of stock decline, the new NY Slimes headquarters building should be finished just in time for their bankruptcy presser.

Spot on! I sincerely hope they go broke. Our local paper - The San Antonio Express-News - is in a similar predicament. Among my friends it is regarded as an archaic dinosaur with nothing but inbred "journalist," i.e, loony leftist liberals. One is not enough, they have libs everywhere. They throw in a token conservative now and then but it is quite clear that they are tolerated rather than warmly embraced. The late Malcolm Muggeridge had it right: "There is something, to me, very sinister about this emergence of a weird kind of conformity, or orthodoxy, particularly among people who operate the media, so that you can tell in advance exactly what they will say and think about anything." Just so! The Express-News, like the New York Times could save themselves a great deal of money by firing about half of their opinion writers. They are basically an undifferentiated mass of liberals, all alike, with the same inane opinions, in short, lemmings of the worst sort. A pox on them all.

Last time NYT was this low (price wise) was 09/16/1997, $21.54 adjusted for dividends etc....working on a 9 year low.

As a newspaper, I don't know if it has ever been lower than it is now.

They would rather go broke than to say one positive word about this country. Never forget, they are the enemy.

Photo of Pinch with his old gray lady, NY Slimes, behind him.

The elite mediot maggot owners of ABCNNBCBS and publishers of the major dinosaur fishwraps are the modern day, Norman Bates. They are trying to keep the corpses alive by refusing to admit that they are dead and to bury them.
