NY Times Gets Subscription Boost From Trump

Thanks for the bump, Trump.

The New York Times got quite the boost thanks to America’s idiots electing Donald Trump president.

In the week after Nov. 8, the Times added 41,000 print and digital subscriptions. That’s the most subscribers the paper has added during a one week span since it implemented digital subscriptions in 2011.

That’s great to hear. We would’ve preferred to be writing about how many subscriptions the Times added after Hillary Clinton was elected, but we’ll take what we can get. The Times’ journalism is needed now more than ever.

“Our newsroom did exceptional work throughout the campaign and they have continued to provide our readers with penetrating and comprehensive coverage of the incoming administration,” said Times president and CEO Mark Thompson, in a statement. “The result has been record-breaking audiences and tens of thousands of new subscribers – clear evidence of how much public demand there is for high quality, deeply reported, independent journalism. We will continue to deliver that journalism, without fear or favor, to our readers in America and around the world.”
