It is irresistible to pay 13 cents a week for something as great as the NYT. Thinking that all of the subscribers are ” hugely loyal, they read loads of stories, they’re well-heeled, and advertisers will pay a premium to reach them” is an overgeneralization. They may well read loads of stories, as I do, but I know that I wouldn’t pay $200 a year to read the NYT online.

But I believe that giving people money encourages them, and I definitely want to encourage the NYT to continue committing real journalism. (In contrast, most so-called “news sites” these days merely repackage wire stories, instead of doing their own reporting.)

So I subscribe to the NYT, because I want the New York Times to continue operating and investigating and reporting.

You should have considered that journalists/businesses requiring news sources might easily make that 300k, but beyond that those who wouldn’t read daily aren’t going to pay.

It is curious that the NYT says it is OKthat so many are finding ways around the wall, as they have loyal followers happy to pay for content. Down the road, that sounds like a poor marketing tool that punishes the loyal viewer, unless they think they can hook more people into paying eventually.

To view articles unobstructed, all you have to do is stop loading the page on your browser before the page is done loading. Then you can stare at an article for as long as you want.

Maybe you won’t lose your bet after all?

Huh?

Also been a dead tree subscriber for a very long time.

It’s pretty clear that the Lincoln subscribers are regular users who make well above the national median (or at least did before they got laid off).
Newsjunkie, NYT is far more interested in wealthy older readers who will pay rather than figure out how to wriggle through the paywall. Advertisers prefer the latter as well.
I still believe the Times would maximize revenues by charging $5 or $10 a year for a hard paywall, because I think they would get far more than 2.5 million subscribers worldwide. However, the current setup fulfills an agenda-setting function that the Times sees as part of its mission.
