In A Bold Move To Keep Pace With Their Shrinking Relevance And Worth…

Pravda is now using smaller paper

NEW YORK Over the years, The New York Times has tended to think big, but tomorrow it will have to adapt to a new smaller-is- beautiful era.
In a front page note to readers this morning, the paper stated that the print edition they will hold tomorrow will be decidedly more compact.
Beginning Monday, the Times “will reduce the width of its pages by an inch and a half,” to a 12-inch standard, the paper declared.
“The move will cut newsprint expenses and, in some printing press locations, will make special configurations unnecessary. Slight modifications in design will preserve the look and texture of The Times, with all existing features and sections, and” — it admitted at the end — “somewhat fewer words per page.”

“somewhat fewer words per page.”
One can only dream.

  1. I would have thought that to save newsprint expenses, they could simply keep the same machines and print fewer pages.
    But what do I know?

    The only use I had for the NYT was as catbox liner, and now it’s going to be too small for that.
