Interesting VF article. The first 18 or so NYT Poll questions made very good sense, as did the last few demographics questions.
I think the five or so questions toward the end that were article specific were somewhat dubious for that kind of poll. If I were running the poll, I would not have put those in as they are more "Do you like us, do you really really like us" questions.
The rest of the poll was standard media boilerplate "how are we doing with the rest of our peergroup" questions with a focus on Internet use which is important as it helps define why the are losing pulp subscribers.
I only get paper NYT on Sunday as I like to read it on the deck, a 25 year tradition.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
