No-news is no-news: Let me get this straight. There’s a long Reuters story that says basically this: The NY Times is “mulling” charging users of NYTimes.com (and, oh by the way, the Wall Street Journal charges subscribers) but hasn’t decided to do anything about it yet.
For the past ten years, the NY Times has been mulling that over. Unless they actually DO announce they are going to charge, IT IS NOT NEWS.
Here’s some REAL news for you however: I heard that the NY Times, frustrated that they can’t figure out how to charge readers for using their website, has decided to make money by setting up bookstores in airports.
