They don't want the public to think about how expensive paper, printing and delivery really is or what a large proportion of the total cost printing really is. And, for many, the quality of electronic publishing is a bit lower because it often does not get quality copy editing.

However, in counterpoint, if the electronic editions result in decreased ad revenue, that could justify the price increase. But, perhaps, they need to look at cost and revenue profiles more closely.

For as long as newspapers want to keep a print edition as well as digital, they're going to struggle.

Yeah, and the people who write, edit and produce the news should do it for free, right?

F-them. 

Not just Apple; the definition of newspapers is FUD.

The gently IQ-enabled folks at NYT are mistaken if they believe that people will knowingly pay dollars a month for a crippled version, or way too much money for a full version.

For the former, they would resent BOTH paying and having information withheld.

Wait and see.
