Wonder why NYT subscriptions keep declining?

Jeff Goldstein at Protein Wisdom nails it, as does the Ace of Spades:

The New York Times: fair, balanced, and unafraid.

****related: Overheard at a Manhattan cocktail party (or a Marin / San Francisco / West LA cocktail party, for that matter):

Man: “How many hicks does it take to screw in a lightbulb?”

Woman: “I don’t know. How many?”

Second woman: ” — Excuse me, I’m sorry to interrupt. Consuela, dear? We’re running low on crab puffs again. Go fetch another tray and make the rounds again, would you?

“Now where were we. Oh yes. Hicks. Do tell, how many of them does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Because I suspect it would be plenty, given that they’re so, you know, stupid and poorly groomed.”
