If the NYT thinks $20 a month is a modest amount for online access, it’s a bit out of touch with the real world.

But I don’t think that’s the problem. The NYT is a premium product, and its owners and managers think it should sport a premium price. That’s partly a strategy to protect the paper’s value, partly a strategy to protect the managers and owners from the humiliation of offering Wal Mart prices.

It’s also an old way of thinking. I’d price the paywall for unlimited access at a dollar a month, and work to get 30 million subscribers.

That is, modest. We are paying for content, not delivery, and anyone who is remotely familiar with the economic truths of media understands that circulation pays for circulation.

The actually delivery of Web content is minuscule when compared to home or newsstand delivery.Operating revenue is generated by ADVERTISING.

What the NYT needs is proof of demographics of readers so that they show those demographics and “page views” to advertisers. What is the difference if I read the ad in the paper or online? I am still exposed to the advertising. As an online reader, I should be rewarded with a lower price per “view” as I am saving the Times money as they do not have to deliver the paper to my doorstep (not to mention the waste of natural resources–and sad to say the demise of the “paperboy.”

Reasonable, even low, prices for online access should prevail in exchange, readers must submit to some demographic scrutiny.

I check out at least a dozen news sites or more every day including NYT. While I would pay $5 a month for a few sites, there’s no way I would pay $20/month for a dozen sites if paywalls become common.

I wonder if they tested the pricing model with the huge number of visitors they get every day or whether they just did a dartboard model to see what sticks.

There’s really nothing there I can’t get elsewhere. I have a copy of Keynes General Theory, so nothing Krugman says surprises; does anyone seriously think anyone is going to pay money to read Maureen Dowd? Lots of hubris for a cage-lining commodity content.

Now Reuters is doing interesting things, and I’m not saying that boost egos there. We have full contact blogging using Felix, financial Netflix with Chrystia, but most importantly an attempt to understand a new thing that is changing things at a cellular level by experimenting with new things. NYT looks like it is still trying to figure out how to make money without changing. Not sure what the future of journalism looks like, but I’m pretty sure that it doesn’t look like the NYT does today.

I probably view 150-200 articles per month. I am 23 years old without much disposable income, but NYT is my primary source of news, and I value it quite highly. Above all else, I feel some kind of responsibility to ensure that a highly professional news organization like the NYT continues to exist, and for that reason they will definitely get a bit of leeway on prices.
