According to a report in the New York Post the venerable New York Times is much worse off financially than anyone predicted.

That $37 million didn't last long, did it. :o)
I smell another bailout, and we all know where that leads.
I hope they have an online liquidation auction. I need a new monitor and could use another laptop if the price is right.
I wonder if bidspotter.com is watching?
venerable |ˈvenərəbəl; ˈvenrə-| adjective accorded a great deal of respect, esp. because of age, wisdom, or characterCharacter? Well, not so much.
Wisdom? That seems obviously not there.
Age? Well, you got me there. Age, they got.
Yeah, there has been chatter on the communist channels about a bailout, making “some” newspapers 501(c)(3) nonprofits, a government takeover, and the like.
When I travel I see piles of the NYT, Boston Glob, LA Times, and USA Today in the lobby. Some hotels force a USA Today on you unless you ask that they keep it to make paper maiche heads for the next moonbat parade.
These all count toward circulation!
It is time for them to hand out more bonuses.
“New York Times is much worse off financially than anyone predicted.”.....
Lovely!....I’ll drink to that!
You've a keen nose:
Credit to abb for link, pass it around.
Well at least Obama won’t have to sack Punch. Punch has been doing the haloed one’s work for over a year so when the GOVT takes control Times Readers won’t even notice a difference. I bet they even keep David Brooks.
Adios! and good ridens
A financially bankrupt New York Times. What a nice thought. After all, they’ve been morally bankrupt for so long that its about time they synced up financially.
Jean Kerry is already proposing government buyout of newspapers. The NYet Times owns the Boston Glob, one of a couple of rags in Kerry’s hometown.
USA Ptooey doesn’t even permit FR to excerpt. They are afraid of having their spin exposed.
Damn! How long is this suicide going to take!!!
The mass media are simply too stupid to survive without government help.
Here’s one thing that clown had to say:
“We need to come up with our [newspapers’] version of craigslist,” he said
Hyeah, right. Let’s see here... come up with a national classified ad system to compete with a hugely successful one that has been doing it for years, has “brand” and instant name recognition, and costs... NOTHING. You’ll have to charge for yours, newspaper assclown, otherwise what’s the point?
I see they don’t teach anything practical in J-school.
Good riddance to bad rubbish. Let them fail just as they are paying senior execs more money. Stupid management deserves failure.
Other than formal 501(c)(3) classification, it seems like this has already happened. They been unprofitably spouting the big-government official line for years. That's what's brought them to this point. They reap what they sow, and it serves them right.
Nice catch, NT. ;^)
Too giddy over finding their plan actually in print, I totally missed the un-logic of the moron's "vision".
"I see they dont teach anything practical in J-school."
No, but they're about to get a real life lesson in macroeconomics. :o)
No wonder the sycophant quisling clowns are pushing socialism 24/7. They more than any other business know they cannot make it in a capitalistic system and surely not to bailout their miserable hides. ;^)
Yep, ZerØ takes control, and the NYT "offically" becomes the propaganda machine of the US gooberment. A new cabinet position: Ministry of Information.
Just what we need....taxpayer subsidized government newspapers. They wouldn’t even have to change their BO/Dem- loving editorial bias.
Shut these losers down and bolt the doors.
I’m going to miss all big newspapers, as the newsprint crowd go out of business. Investigative reporters are the heart and soul of a democracy, and I don’t know where we’re going to find replacements for those we are losing.
Obama is going to combine all of the failing MSM into a new Federal Department, The Ministry of Truth.
So, you think the NY Times will be the
first state run news paper in this
