NYT Accelerates Its Slow Death

Since it erected its paywall, page views at the New York Times web site are down between 11% and 30%, all while the NYT is running a promotion providing access for 99 cents. The non-promotional charge will be up to $35, so expect to see page views and visitors fall off much more after the promotion ends.

Note that this story, by the way, comes from Mashable, which is a free, internet-based tech and media news site that is far more interesting and relevant than the New York Times. It’s also just the sort of site that old men of old media told us could never exist.
