NY Times buying The Athletic

I love it on the $1 a month deal.
Hopefully the NY Times still offers it. They charge $1 a week.

(registration but the 1st few visible paragraphs sum it up)

Everything the NYT touches turns into a news dumpster. Hope the Athletic can survive as I am a subscriber and have enjoyed their coverage of college sports.

They were bleeding money. Best outcome for a bad situation.

agreed, it’s doomed now

From the comments. MANY share your opinion.

My thing:
Just leave Sam Khan’s content alone and we will get along just fine. I’m there for the “Texpert”.

I see only the right wing nut conspiracy mongerers are freaking out over this.

What’s the NY Times? Are they the Giants’ house band?

Read the Athletic is losing over $50 mil a year

The Athletic was desperate for money and the NYT needed a subscriber boost. I would fully expect this to be a “since you’re paying for The Athletic, you now have access to the NYT as well” That way at reporting time they can say they have had an increase of X number of paid subscribers. Looks good for everyone

Times stock sank on the news
