Should We Still Link to The New York Times?

by Andrew Price

January 22, 2010
The New York Times is going to start charging again for access to its articles online. This time it's what's called a "metered model." From the Guardian:
Struggling with an evaporation of advertising and a downward drift in street corner sales, the NYT – motto: "All the news that's fit to print" – intends to introduce a "metered" model at the beginning of 2011. Readers will be required to pay when they have exceeded a set number of its online articles per month.
Will you buy access to The New York Times? I will. In fact, I'd happily treat the Times like public radio, which I elect to support because it's an American treasure and an important public service.But should GOOD still link to Times pieces or is that a reader-unfriendly practice now that we might be sending readers to a paywall?Photo from Flickr user wallyg (cc)
