The Evolution of A1

Friday, January 09, 2009


This week the New York Times attempted to address its sharply declining revenue by introducing an occasional advertisement at the bottom of A1, the latest blip in the evolution of the front page. Times reporter James Barron contributed to the book The New York Times: The Complete Front Pages and says watching changes to page one provides a visual history of news-making in the U.S.

Who cares if they have ads on page one?

If it helps them keep a few reporters and channel their resources better, I'm all for it!

Just when I was getting used to all the editorials on A1, now they go all capitalist on me.
