NY Times continues to struggle despite putting up a subscriber paywall. Offering buyouts (or layoffs) to 30 more journ0lists: Executive Editor Jill Abramson said, ‘There is no getting around the hard news that the size of the newsroom staff must be reduced.'” Gosh, if some other business were doing this, the pundits at the NY Times would be raking the management over the coals for it, doncha think?

When you are drinking the kool aid then try to present yourself as some sort of journalistic icon, what a shock to the system when your paper is used for wiping after people sit upon the porcelain throne. Here is wishing that the Times becomes like most of the extinct species and is something that people only try to imagine what it was.

It could not be happening to a more deserving bunch of leftwing loons.

The Times should try honest reporting.

Besides, doesn’t the Times have that Nobel know-it-all Paul Krugman? Hell, ask him for advice.

They ain’t bankrupt yet? Watching the NY Slimes go tits up is one of the best things that could happen to this country.

Obama would declare it too big, or too important to fail, and bail it out.

Why shouldn’t I cheer…in either case? Rhetorical question cause I’m gonna cheer anyway.

Problem is the libtards will be clueless about why it went out of business and no doubt will blame Bush.

The Times should consult with Nobel Prize winning Paul Krugman, the smartest person on the newspaper’s staff . He knows how to save troubled businesses, like Enron and, uh, …Wait.

Once upon a time I actually read the Times on a regular basis. But sometime in the 90s I gave up on it. It wasn’t the bias, I can live with that (hell, this blog is biased), it was the Times’ dishonest bias and the way it injected that bias into what they pretended was straight reportage.
