NYT: If you don't have something nice to say -- we don't want to hear from you

By Aussiegirl

See no evil, hear no evil, read no evil -- the NYT doesn't want to hear from you unless you pay up.

In a bold move guaranteed to cement their slide into complete irrelevance, the NYT makes public what we knew all along -- these liberal elites live in their own echo chamber, putting their hands to their ears and screaming lalalalala anytime there's a discouraging word.

Fine -- who cares? Thomas Lifson is on the case.

The American Thinker

The New York Times has constructed a second wall around its op-ed columnists, many of whom still bear bruises from criticism they received form bloggers before their publisher erected the “Times Select” subscription wall around them. Unless you subscribe to the print version of the Times, or are willing to pay $50 a year just to read the op-ed columnists, you can no longer read them.

Its a Good Time to be Alive - Nothing like limiting readership access in the face of declining circulation.

Whats next? Charging Fedex delivery rates for same day newspaper delivery?
