Someday, the seas will dry up, the sun will burn out and the New York Times will cease to publish itself on newsprint.
Not such a crazy notion — until Arthur Sulzberger Jr. says so publicly.
The chairman and publisher of the Times conceded at a conference in London that someday, the Gray Lady will no longer actually print all the news that's fit.
What he wouldn't concede was a timeline of any kind.
"We will stop printing the New York Times sometime in the future, date TBD."
That is true. If they don't run out of trees first.
