NYT publisher: We’ll stop printing someday

The economics of the online news business will not support the infrastructure or newsroom that the printed paper supports.

Unless the New York Times Company can come up with a miracle new digital revenue stream, therefore, it will eventually have to be restructured and downsized (or sold to a deep-pocketed Sydney Harmon-type who runs it at a loss out of love).

Importantly, even a successful online paywall will not allow the paper to maintain its current cost structure.
