In particular, the New York Times is taking a beating in the media these past few weeks... The Atlantic has gone out on a limb and reported that the Gray Lady's death could come as early as this May. Click here to check out the piece... it's worth taking a look at.
A bit of positive press for the New York Times came in the form of a New York Magazine article about the "cybergeeks" who work behind the scenes alongside reporters each day to produce multimedia content and bring a certain degree of interactivity to the Times. Click here to check out the article.
We, like many other news junkies, cannot image a world (more specifically, a New York) without the New York Times. However, we must admit that we are not subscribers. Like tons of bloggers, we visit their website freakishly often throughout the day and regularly do posts featuring Times' content, but we do not pay a dime for all the content we use. I know, we're terrible people.
So, BoogieDowner would like to use this as fodder for a new survey: Would you pay to access the website of the New York Times? If so, how much?
We can honestly say that if the New York Times cut us off cold turkey from their site, like any good junky we'd do anything in our power to get our hands on the good stuff. So yes, we'd pay to subscribe as long as it was under $100/year.
