The New York Times has had some rough spots, from trying to charge people for content to giving it all away for free and back again to digital subscriptions.Yes, print media is dying. While print may be declining, the consistent quality of editorial content coming from the staff at the NYT cannot be argued with. Their iPhone/iPad apps continue to be the top of the leaderboard in news apps, their digital subscription model is forming (Apple Store + Amazon Kindle) all those new 'e-ink' customers are chomping it up. And guess what? a group of developers are cheaper to run than a printing press.Also there's the fact that the NYT just happens to be one of the single most respected news organizations in the world. When you are abroad and you want a US newspaper, it's the times you'll be offered.
