Skip to comments.New York Times Will End Print Edition (Eventually), Publisher Says
Posted on 09/09/2010 2:34:39 PM PDT by OldDeckHand
While speaking at a conference in London, chairman and publisher of The New York Times Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. made a major statement about the future of his publication: "We will stop printing The New York Times sometime in the future, date TBD."
He was there to talk about the changing journalistic business model and to touch on the Times' upcoming metered paywall for online content, but it was his concession about the bleak outlook for the print edition of the paper that's become the major news. Henry Blodgett, CEO of Business Insider, predicts the repercussions of suspending the printed version of the Times would have on the operation of the world's largest newsroom:

Oh great! Now, what am I gonna wrap my fish in?
No way the nyt can compete in cyberspace. Bu-By

Will anyone notice?
Er ... As if Pinch had a choice in the matter.
No loss — my dog has refused to poop on that filthy rag for some time — he hates commies.
Yeah, all the stupid libs in my town.
The NYT turns out to be the paper of record. Unfortunately the record was a 45 RPM in an MP3 world. Hey Pinch your time is past. Now get off the stage
Local papers need to start focusing on LOCAL news, forget national news, leave that to the Internet. WRITE original articles about local events and figures and people locally will buy your paper, this isn't rocket science.
Despite the praise it garnered through the years from leftists, the New York Times was never a good newspaper after Adolph Ochs (and his descendants) acquired control.
The original publisher, Henry Raymond, ran it as conservative paper with high journalistic standards.
Ochs, Dryfoos and the Sulzbergers were and are liberals who manufacture news to suit their anti-American strategy.
What are all the young sophisticates going to do on Sunday morning in NYC? Currently (according to the movies and contemporary literature) they lounge around their apartments and work the crossword puzzle while sipping their lattes.
They may have to start going to church for entertainment!
They will end due to no decision on there part other than being a commie rag no one wants to read. Way to spin Pinch.
My reply: “The NYT is not a newspaper - it's a comic book.”
Praise for the hotel, now when we check in, they say: “And we'll have a Seattle paper for you in the morning.”
I never pass up the opportunity to call the NYT ‘comics.’
WHAT??? You wouldn't pay $100/yr to read Maureen Dowd? And Frank Rich?
Cats with full bladders everywhere cried piteously at this great loss for litter boxes.
(true confession: the comments section under a movie review in the NYT is where you can get a huge cross section of real live people reviews of a new movie quickly. I only look online though...)
LOL - Do they call the guy who runs the Times “Pinch” because that’s what everyone does when they produce the equivalent?
Maybe a new tax on internet use to fund the treekillers. Can't left the professional left starve now can we?
I used to be a subscriber to the Sunday edition of the NYTs (when I lived in DC) and I loved reading that paper. Not the "news" stuff, but the other sections. Then, in about June or July of 2001, I was reading something in the Dining & Wine section - the FOOD section - and the author (the since outed homosexual food critic), had three snarky comments about George Bush in one article. Why is the FOOD editor making political commentary in the FOOD section, and in a piece that is supposed to be a "straight news" story about the culinary arts? It was ridiculous. That was it. The last time I bought or read the NYTs.
I wish there was a conservative (or even just balanced) counterpart to the Times, but there isn't. I miss reading the paper, but it's something that's time has passed, sadly.
His father, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, got the nickname of ``Punch'' because of his sister's name of Judy. Thus ``Punch and Judy'', per The Kingdom and the Power by Gay Talese.
The name ``Pinch'' was merely intended as a play on his father's nickname.
what? the NYT has a print edition? !!!
Putz Sulzberger has flown the family business into the ground. Too bad, but irrelevant to those of us who’ve long since turned to the Wall Street Journal.
too bad, 10 years ago they were billionaires now drowning in debt.
Can The Boston Globe be far behind?
Mine won't either - he claims it would be redundant.
Is that a threat or a promise?
This could be series, even hugh. What WILL we use for bird cages, puppies, and cats? What will we make paper mishae (how the heck do you spell that?) with? What to wrap fish in or put down on the floor to catch the paint drips? There are so many uses for newspaper, we really might not want to wish them all away. I know........I’m going to start a business making newspaper without print to sell for all those uses.
