The New York Times just issued a stunning reversal and the nation is completely shocked. Founded in 1851, the publication used to carry respect before becoming a tabloid, and this move won’t help perception.
According to a report from Breitbart News, the far-left newspaper “has reportedly removed its articles from the Apple News app” and is now hoping “to drive readers to paywalled content on its site.”
This is a joke. The NYT was already bleeding readers — it is why President Donald Trump is fond of calling it “the failing New York Times” — and now all of their content will be hidden behind a paywall.
But perhaps the Apple News app will replace the NYT with a far more reliable publication. Surely there is one out there that wants the massive daily exposure provided via millions of iPhones worldwide.
“An Apple spokesperson said that Apple News is ‘committed to supporting quality journalism through the proven business models of advertising, subscriptions, and commerce,'” continued Breitbart.
If that is the case, then it would seem that the NYT leaving the app is going for everyone. People don’t have to see biased articles on their iPhones and Apple can search for “quality journalism” to replace it.
