I've subscribed to TimesSelect for the last couple of years and found it well worth
the $49/year price. It's now free to everyone online.

Life gets better!

A Letter to Readers About TimesSelect

Dear NYTimes.com Readers:

Effective Sept. 19, we are ending TimesSelect. All of our online readers will now be able to read Times columnists, access our archives back to 1987 and enjoy many other TimesSelect features that have been added over the last two years free.

If you are a paying TimesSelect subscriber, you will receive a prorated refund. We will send you an e-mail on Wednesday, Sept. 19 with full details.

Why the change?

Since we launched TimesSelect in 2005, the online landscape has altered significantly. Readers increasingly find news through search, as well as through social networks, blogs and other online sources. In light of this shift, we believe offering unfettered access to New York Times reporting and analysis best serves the interest of our readers, our brand and the long-term vitality of our journalism. We encourage everyone to read our news and opinion as well as share it, link to it and comment on it.

We welcome all online readers to enjoy the popular and powerful voices that have defined Times commentary Maureen Dowd, Thomas L. Friedman, Frank Rich, Gail Collins, Paul Krugman, David Brooks, Bob Herbert, Nicholas D. Kristof and Roger Cohen. And we invite them to become acquainted with our exclusive online journalism columns by Stanley Fish, Maira Kalman, Dick Cavett and Judith Warner; the Opinionator blog; and guest forums by scientists, musicians and soldiers on the frontlines in Iraq. All this will now reach a broader audience in the United States and around the world.

This month we mark the 156th anniversary of the first issue of The New York Times. Our long, distinguished history is rooted in a commitment to innovation, experimentation and constant change. All three themes were plainly evident in the skillful execution of TimesSelect; they will be on full display as NYTimes.com becomes entirely open.

Sincerely,

Vivian Schiller
Senior Vice President & General Manager

So the idiots finally figured out their readership (like me who refuses to click on an NYT link) had departed. Like Iraq, this is naturally not even slightly their own fault. Here it is because the Internet is changing...  of course. Amusingly enough, the NYT is again apparently far behind the news, because their move is happening just in time for Google et al to start quoting Reuters et al directly, rather than via newspapers.

I wish that the NYT had remained "exclusive" till they went out of business, as we will almost certainly see a series of weighty pro-war articles by their pompous, neocon oriented opinionistas, cut and pasted verbatim into our forums by the same brain damaged half-wits as whine about the non-existent-except-in-their-imaginations "liberal press".

Thanks for the warning Walter, keep your head down!

Kindest Regards

I've cut and pasted quite a few NYTimes articles, including op-eds, into our forums over the years, but nary a one that I remember was authored by pro-war neocons nor remotely right-wing.


Your brain damaged half-wit old friend,
