New York Times denies it is "a failing newspaper"

The New York Times continued to claim it is not "a failing newspaper" despite a presidential tweet.


The newspaper claimed it has 3.3 million subscribers.

However, audited circulation figures put the number at 571,500 daily, and 1,087,500 on Sunday.

The newspaper claims another 2.2 million digital -- online -- subscribers. That number cannot be independently verified.

The newspaper recently cashiered another 100 newsroom employees, many of them experienced and unionized copy editors. Its management claimed that they will be replaced by online reporters as the newspaper slowly abandons print.

Trump's tweet responded to the Fake News in Sunday's New York Times that Vice President Mike Pence will oppose President Trump for the 2020 Republican nomination.

Hat tip: The Hill.

  3. Whatever figure they use, their circulation sucks for a city of 8+ million and metropolitan area of 20+ million. Their circulation mirrors their reporting.

  4. Half their subscribers are probably just using it as fish-wrap or to line the bottom of the bird cage.

  5. I wonder why a thriving business would lease out 8 floors of its flagship for some rental income?
