Superb Results at the New York Times

Wednesday, January 11, 2006
The flagship paper for New York City - The New York Post reports results concerning its second rate competitor that raise the spirits on this overcast day. While the Post's circulation within the five boroughs has increased by by some 29% over the period '01-'04 the NYT's circulation for the same area dropped a handsome 18.7%. The Time's ill thought and poorly executed plan to go "national" has increased its total circulation by a whopping .5% (that's half of one per cent).

What percentage of the costs associated with going national might that .5% increase cover? My bet is that it covers much less than its equivalent - perhaps .005% of the additional cost.

It is good to know that Sulzberger and Keller's business acumen is as substantial as their sense of civic duty. May they and every NYT shareholder reap all that they have sown.

“NYT's circulation for the same area dropped a handsome 18.7%.”

This is wonderful news. At this moment, we are unable to ignore the New York Times. Hopefully, by the time of the 2008 elections---few will care about its front page headlines and editorial page. Hillary Clinton does not have a realistic chance of winning the presidency without the backing of a powerful MSM. Moreover, the whole Democratic Party is royally shafted if its media comrades are incapable of delivering the goods.

Love to see Rupert Murdoch start buying up the busted stock--that would be the end of the hard-left. Its head would explode. After mopping the rather small mess, we'd have America back again, in all her radiant glory!

Knucklehead said...

This couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of seditionists! Thanks for sharing, Rick

Buddy Larsen said...

Delivered by an Ozzie--what a nice bit of Anglospheric glue.

(That's a geographic 'anglosphere', Mark--not a racial one.)

Eric Blair said...

I saw that graph the 1st time "American Digest" pointed it out.

Impressive. The other link at Malkins shows similar woes for nearly all those publishers.

I think we are witnessing a near perfect storm of bad business decisions, bad reporting, and the availablility of alternatives that people are obviously taking advantage of.

You'd figure that with the Stock Market at over 11,000 after 4 years, that these stocks would have followed the upward trend. The money bags have spoken. I'm not even sure in 5 years there will be a NY Times.

Rick Ballard said...

Buddy,

The Sulzbergers control the Times through ownership of Class B stock - the class that gets to elect the board of directors. Owning class A buys a ticket for the ride conducted by Paunch as designated idiot representative of the Sulzbergers. Murdoch does the same thing and there is no way he would touch the A stock while Paunch was in the saddle.

The company has a higher breakup value than the current stock price and firing the dimwitted duo of Paunch and Billy would (IMO) result in a price jump of at least 50%. I'm betting that the Sulzbergers will pull the plug on Paunch within a year or so. If I were investing in equities I might look at some long call options (if they exist).

Vanderleun opines on the den of sweetness and light that is today's New York Times. Worth a read.

Barry Dauphin said...

And they were hoping for the cha-ching sounds when they put Krugman and Dowd on a pay per view basis. Right now to make money on pay per view, they'll have to get Krugman and Dowd to mud wrestle nude on the web! (I'd bet on MoDo in that one).

Specter said...

Myabe their readership is sinking because they don't carry articles like this:

Abramoff-linked probe focuses on 5 lawmakers

And who are those 5 you ask.

Law-enforcement authorities and others said the investigation's opening phase is scrutinizing Sens. Conrad Burns, Montana Republican; Byron L. Dorgan, North Dakota Democrat; and Minority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, along with Reps. J.D. Hayworth, Arizona Republican, and Bob Ney, Ohio Republican.

Now I wonder why the NYT didn't carry this?

Rick Ballard said...

Barry,

I'll send you $20 if you promise never to raise Krugman/Dowd nude mudwrestling again. I just ate a nice lunch and am having trouble keeping it down.

Specter,

This is why hurling a boomerang is tricky business. Best not to close your eyes after throwing.

Rick,

Hey, it's sounds like I've now got a good business plan. If only the NYT did.

Buddy Larsen said...

Actually, it is:

markg8 said...

C'mon we on the left have been calling the NYT the New Pravda for years. At least since they spread Starr's dirtywork on Whitewater. Didn't help that they also backed Bush's invasion of Iraq, published Judith Miller's garbage (remember her?) and held off for over a year on Bush's secret spying on Americans.

OTH I read where the Post is starting to suck up to Hillary. My guess is they're getting out in front on this cuz they figure there won't be any Republicans left to champion in about a year.

It's sad to see such a Robust Celebration of Schadenfreud.
What will Mark think of you mean-spirited folk?

Doug my nickname among the Corpovenistas was 'neandertal'--which i thought was because I was bigger than most of them--until I found out it was my Spanish. Me try talk good, but me no use 'em past and future.

Buddy Larsen said...

I can hear Mark now, as they're loading him into the ambulance this November "No, no, you don't understand, Bush is the devil,THE DEVIL!!!"

markg8 said...

"Bush's secret spying on Americans

Bush's secret spying on al Qaeda."

I can see how you'd think that since you can't discern the difference between Democrats and Al Qaeda.

Specter said...

LOL Mark,

It's about time you finally made the connection. I mean how much money did CodePink give to the "freedom fighters" in Fallujah. And then the give the Pink Medal to Murtha. Remember the "associative principle" from your early days in math? Quid Pro Quo.

Buddy Larsen said...

Oh, that's wrong--none of you guys wear turbans yet.

Doug said...

"
...many listeners in our day and age have lost sight--not just of truth vs. relative truth, or objective vs. subjective truth--but of any truth-falsehood distinction outside of their own perceptions. So the new definition of a lie has become: something that fooled me. Something that I heard and thought was true, and then discovered wasn't true. It made me angry to be jerked around like that. So it's a lie.

Doug said...

Is it just me, or have I noted fewer "Hat Tips" starting about the time after the launch of PJ Media?
Are we becoming more like "them?"

markg8 said...

Less obtuse neo: I don't know why all those people can't just accept the fact that Bush means well no matter what he says. Sometimes a presdient just has to make stuff to get us to go along. We shouldn't hold him to the actual words. We clever people knew what he meant all along anyway. It's all about freedom! Me likey freedom.

flenser said...

specter

You have to understand the "associative principle" in the same way mark does.

If the talking points of the Democratic party are the same as those of Al Queda, that is simply coincidence. It's questioning their patriotism to note that they are saying something objectionable.

But if Alito was a member of some group, one of whose other members once said something stupid, it is exactly the same as if Alito said it himself. Even though he did not.

In other words, the Dem's must not be held accountable for what they have actually said, but Alito must be held accountable for things he did not say.

It all makes perfect sense when you are a Democrat, apparently.

markg8 said...

When a majority of Americans express the same wishes as a majority of Iraqis and say let's get out of Iraq that makes us all Al Qaeda? Your little exercise falls apart right there.

Buddy Larsen said...

Monobrow better than hammer n sickle branded on butt, me say.

When a majority of Americans express the same wishes as a majority of Iraqis and say let's get out of Iraq that makes us all Al Qaeda?

When that day comes, get back to me. In the meantime remember that this is not a free forum for you to spread your lies.

Specter said...

Mark,

Post your source so we can once again tear it apart.,....

flenser said...

No mark, don't.

Go watch The West Wing and pretend a Democrat is president.

Buddy Larsen said...

He's probably got a push-poll from somewhere--what you want to see is the mechanics of the poll--who, when, where--and...the...questions.

I have a poll, took it at the grocery store yesterday in Dripping Springs (home of Edie of FoxFriends, and Lance Armstrong), and 100% love Bush and hate Mark.

Buddy Larsen said...

No, go watch "SpongeBob" and pretend you have a senator with that much gravitas.

Syl said...

The only poll that says such a thing was commissioned by the British military. It was conducted by students at a university in Iraq. The underlying data was not released.

It's the poll Murtha/pelosi et al cite.

They know it's dishonest, so do the moonbats who keep citing it. Doesn't matter to them.

Doug said...

Has Mark ever responded directly to any point or citation made here?

Rick Ballard said...

I don't think his algorithm has been upgraded to allow for responses, Doug. You know how Soros is about upgrades.

flenser said...

doug

Thats kinda the definition of a troll, isn't it?

If you ask a question, they prefer not to respond. They want you to dance to their tune.

I ran into a "Bush Lied" fanatic at FPM once. I asked him, if Bush lied aout the reasons for the war, what are the "real reasons"? He refused to respond, over a period of months. Which makes sense if he was a paid disruptor.

Peter UK said...

Oh Markg8 has some humanoid characteristic he is a braggart Scroll to the last comment,he gives you a mention.Makes it sound like he is a member of the International Brigade back from the front.

terrye said...

mark:

The majority of Iraqis want to have a better future. You want them to fail.

The majority of Americans want to know who AlQaida is talking to in the US. You want AlQaida to be left alone.


You are sad, really you are. I pity you.

flenser said...

peter

I had not realized Hagel was so loopy. It seems that all we need to do is sit down and talk with the Iranians.

Why didn't that idiot Bush think of that?

Hagel seems unaware that we have been in an undeclared war with Iran for the past thirty years. I guess the Dem's don't have all the dumb senators.

terrye said...

mark called us wingnuts.

I checked out peter's link and it was very educational.....When Zarqawi is feeling down he should go visit those sites. The dhimmitude is alive and well.


mark actually thinks that by quoting Hagel to us he scared us..

The truth is Hagel is McCain jr. and I do not give a rat's ass what he says.

But mark spoke truth to the wingnuts.

I'd rather be a wingnut than a traitor.

I'd rather be a wingnut than pander to Islamofascists in the hopes that I can save my sorry behind.

Oh but I forgot there are no Islamofascists... it is all part of George's plot and once he and the big bad Republicans are gone the world will be a happy place of loonies and terrorists dancing through fields of laughing flowers.

Sounds like paradise.

terrye said...

Well if Carter actually had the balls to deal with these people 30 years ago, the world would not have to wonder if some insane mullah is going to wipe Israel from the map and manage to take a significant segment of the population of the Middle East with them.

Buddy Larsen said...

Terrye, 'laughing flowers', love it, it tickles.

flenser said...

I'd rather be a wingnut than a traitor.

Buddy Larsen said...

Didn't they do "Mark's Song",

Hello, dorkness, my old friend....?

Doug said...

"People typing without writing,"

markg8 said...

Geez the only poll to say that was commissioned by the British military? Last I saw they were part or the coalition of the willing. A big part. They have the third most foreign troops in the country behind the US military and a whole bunch of US funded mercs who are accountable to no one. Why does the British military hate America?

Buddy Larsen said...

Because you live here?

Peter UK said...

Buddy,
The poll was conducted in the al Basrah area where the British presence is,it was for internal reference only,but obviously some pustule like Markg8 leaked the report.
Interestingly,in the town of Basra support for the troops is high but diminishes in the outlying areas.
The British military of course does not hate America,we are delighted that you have weeded out the substandard personel like John F,Kerry that blighted Vietnam.
It is also to your great credit that you have managed to avoid the corrupting influences of the Mark Garrity types.

markg8 said...

Aw somebody let the cat out of the bag. I don't remember if this poll was conducted in the Basra area and frankly I'm too lazy to look it up. But if it was how does that make your case better is as you say in the town of Basra support for the troops is high?

BTW I'm still waiting Peety. How old are you and what great military accomplishments do you have?

Peter UK said...

Wrong thread again Markg8,get your carer to put you on the right one.
A little clue for the impaired, Basrah is not all of Iraq.

Buddy Larsen said...

I thought you were against 'cherry-picking', anyway, Mark.

Considering the number of polls, are you cherry-picking the topics which are to be or not to be 'cherry-picked' within?

markg8 said...

Ok let's take a look at that UK Iraqi poll again, shall we?

The nationwide survey also suggests that the coalition has lost the battle to win the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people...

Got that Peety?

Some of the lowlights:

• Forty-five per cent of Iraqis believe attacks against British and American troops are justified - rising to 65 per cent in the British-controlled Maysan province;

• 82 per cent are "strongly opposed" to the presence of coalition troops;

• less than one per cent of the population believes coalition forces are responsible for any improvement in security;

• 67 per cent of Iraqis feel less secure because of the occupation;

• 43 per cent of Iraqis believe conditions for peace and stability have worsened;

• 72 per cent do not have confidence in the multi-national forces.

Ya know why we don't hear much good news from Iraq? There isn't much good news in Iraq.

markg8 said...

BTW still waiting Peety. Certainly you can make up just as much personal history out of whole clothe as you do elsewhere.

Peter UK said...

Buddy,
At least the cretin Markg8 is looking at old news,he might even get up to date.You would think he would go to Iraq to see for himself,I could even arrange for him to be embedded.

markg8 said...

Sure ya could, sure ya could Peety. That article is dated 10.23.05. The poll was taken in August.

Still waiting Peety. Let's hear how old you are and all about your illustrious military career. We know Buddy is 62 and I'm 49. We know all about the demise of Buddy's cheese biz and you've even gone as far to dig up some old post of mine about Russian plywood sales. So let's hear about you tough guy.

Peter UK said...

Russian plywood,not good patriotic American plywood,what were you doing helping the cause?

Who is we Markg8? I think you will find you are on your own here.
About me? I'm just taking the piss out of a silly self important old fool who thinks he is a political mover and shaker.Get a life,get a job Markg8!

markg8 said...

Still waiting Peety. I've got time.

Buddy Larsen said...

HEY DAMMIT, I'm YEARS and YEARS short of 62...well a few anyway. ok, three. BUT, that's three, it ain't two, it ain't one, and I ain't there yet.

Buddy Larsen said...

Mark, ok, that's apretty damning poll. But there's tons of others that come to precisely opposite conclusions. Should I go a-huntin', or will you be a nice guy and concede my point?

markg8 said...

Nope go find 'em. Try to the CPA poll from 2004 for starters.

I thought for sure you said you were 62 Buddy. Maybe that was when you were trying to discourage terrye from getting a crush on you.

Peter UK said...

2004?

markg8 said...

Yeah The CPA has been out of business for awhile chickenhawk. After Rummy got bored with misadministratin the country he dumped it in Powell's lap.
Go look up the poll, from the first half of 2004 I believe it was. There hasn't been a lot of polls out of Iraq for the same reason it's hard to get good reporting there. People who ask too many questions have a habit of getting kidnapped. Hell people who look like they have a twenty in their pocket get kidnapped.

Peter UK said...

You are safe them Markg8.

Buddy Larsen said...

Odd how well the dinar and the stock markets and the elections, new business start-ups, real-estate prices, and weddings, birthrates, gdp, and public health are all moving sharply upwards and have been, without a blip, since the re-election of Bush.

Same phenomenon in markets all over the world, exceptionally in Latin America, Eastern Europe, and most of Africa--not to mention Asia, the Mideast, and the USA.

Do billions of people 'get' Kerry, or do they 'get' Bush, or, heh-heh, "both"?

Gad, Mark, you have a memory like a steel trap--that was when Terrye said she was a cross between Meryl Streep and Ma Kettle, and I was Dagwood and a Triceratops, on a RogerSimon thread six months ago. It's too damn bad you're a Communist Lunatic, your brain could do some good for humanity.

markg8 said...

The real estate boom has ended I heard. I hope it's not so cuz it looks like we might be selling my parents' house this summer. As for the rest of it, live it up while you can. The Chinese are diversifying out of dollars and Bush seems set on pissing off anyone who has fossil fuels to sell us. It's gonna be a bumpy ride in the 2010s.

Never saw that post on Simon's site. Rarely go there anymore and it's even rarer for me to read the comments. I imagine terrye to be a lithe 40 something with short brown hair. Probably prettier than she thinks she is. You maybe along the lines of an older crustier George Lindsey and probably just as pretty as you think you are. I on the other hand have been told I look William Hurt or Chevy Chase. I think the later was because I'm a smartass and the former because she was trying to get in my pants. Peety I think looks and acts like a much younger less savvy Ernest T. Bass.

Peter UK said...

"because she was trying to get in my pants"

Since when has a woman had to compliment a man to get into his pants,never ever heard a man use that expression,a woman yes.

Peter UK said...

BTW Markg8,that was probably John Hurt.

Buddy Larsen said...

Yep, the rest of the world is getting wealthier, and closing the gap with the USA.

A problem? So, what do want, Mark, more famine and pestilence on foreign shores, to keep Uncle Sam way up on top?

As far as an overheated housing boom settling down to sustainable rates, won't that help the young folks trying to get started? You know, your constituency, the younger and/or minority lower rungs of the net-worth ladder? If you *personally* missed the top of the boom, well, Blame Bush.

Or we could have a Politburo set all prices and values. That always works well.

Looks-wise, I believe George Lindsey--"Goober" on the Andy Griffith Show--replaced Jim "Kerry-lookalike" Nabors?

No, I'm more of an Edgar Buchanan in "The Wild Bunch", or even a less-sleek Ernest Borgnine.

But we can't all be Chevy Chase or William Hurt, those High-Aryan, SS-looking types.

markg8 said...

I dunno Peety I guess I'm more picky than you.

Peter UK said...

Buddy,Markg8 is more the Steve Buscemi type,the old rule,people are the opposite to the image they portray

Buddy Larsen said...

Buscemi stole "Fargo".

Peter UK said...

From your attic Markg8 ?

Peter UK said...

So what did Markg8 steal?

markg8 said...

Don't blame me if my parents were
homecoming king and queen at their respective high schools Buddy. I didn't pick 'em, I just got lucky. I tease my cousin's kid for being a male model. He and his sister sat for an illustrator drawing a children's book when they were young. Talk about your good looking kids. They have some Dutch on their side and have shiny blond hair to go with sprouting gym rat physiques. His 12 year old daughter is almost as tall as I am. But enough braggin. Found those polls yet?

markg8 said...

Ever see the Coen Bros. first movie Blood Simple Buddy? One of my favorite thrillers.

Peter UK said...

Nice you take such a close interest in your family Markg8.

Buddy Larsen said...

"Blood Simple"
was great--their first--filmed rat cheer in Austin.

Oh, the polls, the polls, let's see, try the latest Fox Opinion Dynamics, or hie thee to your hometown Chicago Tribune morgue, or any of a vast number of websites that report a vast number of polls that contradict those little dried-out boogers you've got stored under your keyboard.

markg8 said...

I thought you were going to dig up all the candy and flowers excepts for our perusal. Can't find any?

markg8 said...

M. Emmet Walsh, that's who you look like Buddy!

Buddy Larsen said...

Well, I haven't 'searched', I just 'know'. I watch 'news' and 'read' stuff.

Gimme a hint on Walsh, oh, exalted Lebensborn one, please?

Buddy Larsen said...

The mechanic from "Bonnie & Clyde" ?

The "...dirt in the fuel line--I just blowed it away" guy?

Oh, that does it, now i'm MAD!

Peter UK said...

There Ya Go Buddy,tha's why the bar empties when he walks in,"Markie no Mates"

markg8 said...

No, no, no. The private dick in Blood Simple.

markg8 said...

You don't watch the news and stuff. You get yours from sources that won't disturb your worldview.

Buddy Larsen said...

Oh, THAT guy. Har--good one--I'm stung.

And you're right again, your worldview IS disturbing. According to the "Little Black Book of Communism", it has disturbed about 100,000,000 poor souls to death.

markg8 said...

C'mon Buddy you know I'm not a communist. You can think up better insults than that. It'd be like me insinuating you're a nazi all day.

Buddy Larsen said...

Ya doesn't hafta BE one to help one, you can be a 'useful idiot'--or, in your case, a 'useless idiot'.

Besides, they're the same thing with different labels.

But take back Emmet Walsh and i'll take back Communist.

markg8 said...

Fine you're George Lindsey. I met some communists a year ago New Year's Eve in an elevator at the Palmer House in Chicago of all places. I asked if they'd done the right thing and voted for Kerry. All I got were sheepish grins. Probably for the best. My harangue would've woken the whole hotel if they'd given me a negative.

Peter UK said...

Would that be the same Kerry who swapped spit with the Viet Cong in Paris 1971?

Buddy Larsen said...

Odd that he and his bride's honeymoon trip was to the same place at the same time as the enemy delegation--which meant he could 'do private diplomacy' for us.

Peter UK said...

Yes,interesting that a man who was still officially a member of your armed forces was meeting with your communist enemies in Paris.Perhaps he met them in the lift.

Buddy Larsen said...

Maybe they all grinned sheepishly.

Peter UK said...

Yes well,even Communists don't deserve to get stuck in a lift with him,fifteen floors of "I served you know,do you want to see my wounds? This one I got from being to tall on a small boat,this one where I caught it in my zip,and these in a ferocious attack on a rice store,did I tell you that I served?"
They probably claimed asylum after that.

Buddy Larsen said...

Yeh, he'd've been a joke if the enemy hadn't been raising fresh divisions on the strength of his Peace Work.

We don't hang people, we elect 'em lifetime senator & presidential candidate.

If you put it in a novel, no one would buy it.

Peter UK said...

Dunno,make him a Republican and you have a best seller.Seriously who put him up to it,it isn't his own idea,the man is obviously as thick as a navvy's butty.Somebody said,"Do this John and you can be Senator for life"

markg8 said...

Trotting out the Swiftie's tome? Sad. Just sad.

Peter UK said...

Markg8,
No!

Buddy Larsen said...

Sad, hell--as Peter says, Act III of the Manchurian Candidate ain't over yet by a long shot.

Peter UK said...

Buddy,
The man is a recognisable type in the business,gung ho,incompetant and not to bright.
Proof,Kerry was there for three months got more medals than a pawn shop,but nrver got promoted,the navy got him out as fast as possible.Couldn't throw him in the brig because of his father,so they did the next best thing and threw him out.
You've seen the man,fall over everything,would you want him behind a couple of fifties?

Buddy Larsen said...

That nearly every soul who knows him either distrusts him to the max, or is on his payroll, is pretty telling.

Peter UK said...

Yes "Machine Gun Kerry" really instilled loyalty ans affection in his comrades in arms.

markg8 said...

You guys are pathetic. There is nothing more that needs to be said about the subject. Just pathetic.

Peter UK said...

Buddy,What's that funny smell?

Buddy Larsen said...

Mark, your defense of Kerry--"Nothing more to be said, you guys are pathetic"--is so massively powerful, i'm fricken stunned.

Peter UK said...

"There is nothing more that needs to be said about the subject."

Well STFU you ignorant slut Jane.

Buddy Larsen said...

...said Chevy Chase, in his best George Patton voice.

Peter UK said...

As the bar patrons rushed out of the door.

Buddy Larsen said...

...prompting Chevy/george to run madly around the room scraping up the waitresses tips before they could get them, then to leap out the window, and head toward the next bar.

Peter UK said...

Waitresses tips,hell Buddy,he is too busy stripping out the plywood
