NY TimesSelect to End

The NYPost is reporting that that the NYTimes is poised to abandon their ill-advised TimesSelect subscription service… told ’em it was going to bomb. Another Sulzberger success story…

After much internal debate, Times executives – including publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. – made the decision to end the subscription-only TimesSelect service but have yet to make an official announcement, according to a source briefed on the matter.

The decision, which also walled off access to archives and other content, was controversial almost from the start, with some of the paper’s own columnists complaining that it limited their Web readership.
