#1 But they'll have the last laugh if they get a President Obama and a Democratic supermajority. :(

#2 I suspect the usual BDS laced editorial meetings end with something like "To the last I grapple with thee; from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee."

#3 You mean to tell me that there are still some people who will buy NYT stock? And pay around $15 per share? Amazing.

#6 Remember that the Sulzbergers have had a policy in place for years to drive down the stock price of the NYT, so they can buy it back for pennies, and privatize it, utterly screwing their investors.

For this reason, look at every major gaffe at the paper as possibly being intentional.

#7 The problem with a scorched earth policy is that you assume you will be able to rebuild it eventually afterward. Given the declining position of all old media, that's not a given. As the phrase goes, timing is everything.

#8 What a completely irrelevant piece of super-thrash who's only audience that believes it is resident in a 4 block area of the upper west side of Manhattan. I still get the Sunday edition in order to practice the exercises from my anger management classes and do the crossword puzzle.

#9 The press are not supporting him because they love the guy. They know he will be just like the Clintons and the press will control him. This is all about control of our president and the press controlling our country.

#10 The NYT pension plan was underfunded even before the recent market collapse and probably much more so now. The company's cash flow may be already insufficient to meet pension obligations and is shrinking.

The Times and it's workers need an administration willing to bail out union negotiated pension plans. Obama, Pelosi and Reed will have control over the federal purse and are exactly what the company and union need to solve a big problem.

#13 In the end the NYT will be sold for the same price as TVGuide:$1. That's for the whole company, not a copy of the rag.

#14 When the talented small business owner reaches the $250K mark which is the point where anything over that goes to B.O., then that owner will not reason advertise or to run more employment adds.

Dumb butt journalists don't realize no one is going to work hard beyond the $250K mark just to give it to B.O.. So B.O. gets no money, newspapers get no money, unemployment sky rockets with no way for the government to pay the high unemployment since no one is hiring.

#15 "then that owner will not reason" should read "then that owner will have no reason to advertise or to run more employment ads."
