From the Paper:

"There are several components to the value chain - infrastructure, inbound logistics, operations, outbound logistics, sales and marketing, service and procurement. The New York Times excels at a number of these in order to maintain its leadership position. The infrastructure at the Times is a support structure, but beyond the corporate culture does not make or break the organization. The culture is the one component of the infrastructure from which the Times derives excellence. Despite the weak tone of the company's description of its culture in the "Rules of the Road", the commitment to integrity and excellence permeates the entire organization. Times employees are genuinely committed to upholding the company's position as the best. This attracts top talent, and it allows the Times to execute on strategies that are geared towards a leadership position. The Times' brand strength - its reputation - is another component of the company's infrastructure that has been built over the years. This lends the Times brand instant credibility in its endeavors, something that facilitates building out a leadership position.
"The inbound logistics is perhaps the strongest component of the New York Times value chain. While newspapers come on newsprint or over the Internet, ultimately the product is the content."
