What The Final New York Times Will Look Like

Ever wonder what the final edition of The New York Times will look like? Well, Slate is giving us all a look into the grim future of the paper today. Produced by a group of writers, the satirical, interactive final Times contains headlines like “Owners May Have ‘Torched’ Building for Money,” sections reduced down to “World/U.S./SoHo” and articles on the 2nd Avenue subway line getting a bike lane.

Oh, and just in case you think the Times doesn’t try to adapt and keep publishing, it does:

The newspaper went to many lengths to stay alive. One example: putting the word ‘f-ck’ in articles and columns. The thinking was: ‘f-ck’ had worked for the New Yorker. Why not for the Times? A recent David Brooks column was the first use of what had previously been referred to as ‘an obscenity which cannot be printed here.’

RIP New York F-cking Times.
