In other words, they're free to make their own calls, and face the consequences. Or reap the rewards.

My take is this: they've cast their lot squarely with a small segment of the customer base, and it casts doubt, to put it extremely mildly, on their claim to journalistic integrity.

Seraph above thinks the free market approves. A segment of it does.

I think Arthur Sulzberger isn't the first wastrel to plow under his family's legacy.

You may be right, but last I heard the NYT profits were up thanks to internet revenues.

Fair enough.
