Political Science Blog Challenges 'New York Times'

March 22, 2011

The decision by The New York Times to start charging for online content has prompted considerable debate here and elsewhere. A political science blog, The Monkey Cage, responded by announcing that it would start to charge Times staffers a monthly fee to have access to the blog. At the same time, the political scientists have indicated that they will permit -- at no charge -- posting on the blog by Times employees "if the comments are essentially positive and invoke the words 'insightful' or 'counter-intuitive." Further, Times employees are assured that free links will be available on Twitter.
