As in everything in life….these days, capitalism wins.
The NYTimes for long the pre-eminent leader of the newspaper world (according to me) has become a partially paid service.
They have some new product called Times Select whereby you have to either cough up money monthly to get in or have to be a home subscriber.
Now I can understand if I had to pay for articles a couple of weeks down the line. But horror of horrors, I tried to access the Kristoff article in the Op-Ed today and lo and behold….I am locked out.
The article appears in today’s newspaper. It is not even a day old.
As much as I love reading the NYT, and nary a day goes by when I dont have my dose; I am OUTRAGED.
Anyone else feeling the same way ??
