  • TimesSelect To Go Free … To College Kids

    Thomas Friedman approves

    As part of its “journalistic mission to get people talking on campuses,” nytimes.com is set to give free access for its often-ridiculed TimesSelect content to all those with a “.edu” e-mail address. The open access begins March 13. Vivian Schiller, senior vice president and general manager at NYTimes.com: “We wanted to open that up so that college students and professors can have a dialogue.”

    The Times also wanted to drum up buzz for its “Win a Trip with Nick” contest, in which op-ed columnist Nicholas Kristof, chooses one college or graduate student and one middle or high school teacher to accompany him on a June trip to Africa.

  • Times‘ Friedman Responds To Radar Over Second Home In Aspen

    New York Times op-ed columnist and frequent flyer Thomas Friedman was a bit irked by a recent piece posted on Radar which asserted he maintained a second home in Aspen. Friedman responded via e-mail:

    Thanks for your piece on Radar[Online]. You got all your facts right, but one. We don’t have a second home in Aspen, or anywhere else. I will need to get more things wrong to achieve that status. I think you might be referring to my in-laws’ home, where we stay when we visit them. You seem to be interested in facts, so I figured you would want to know. All best, Tom Friedman

    Still, as FishbowlNY found out last year , Friedman is fully aware of his seemingly open-ended Times expense account.
