While the number of daily printed newspapers in the US has seen a slow, but steady decline since the advent of the Internet, there are still nearly 1500 newspapers still in print and operating. The “New York Times” is one of the most well-known of these newspapers and is considered the newspaper of record in the US. The “Times” first started publishing on September 18, 1851, which makes paper #119591, ”The New York Times”, a very appropriate choice for this week’s Paper of the Week on AcaDemon. This paper analyzes the business side of the “Times” rather than its journalistic practices, and presents the strengths and weaknesses of the business, as well as suggests recommendations for how the "Times" should proceed in order to keep it competitive and strong. This paper presents a very unique look at one of the iconic symbols of journalism worldwide. Don’t miss!
