|The Times Displays Its Digital Reach
By: Doug Bedell
The New York Times wants readers to know it has a strong digital presence, as well as on paper, the better to navigate the future. So the Times is providing a showcase of “50 of Our Best” highlighting its digital coverage since its launch in 2011.
And, indeed, the “Op-Docs: A Short History of the Highrise,” for one, is a masterpiece of widescreen (if you’re fortunate enough to have one) digital coverage, complete with moody music.
This is an example of why The Times, at least, expects to be around for another century.
Now, in the same evident spirit as The Times, The Washington Post is annoucing that it will "publish 100% of the stories that go on its website to (Facebook's new) Instant Articles. That amounts to roughly 1,200 articles a day including wire stories." Of course, it remains to be seen how many of them will be read there as people click through Facebook for updates on family members, friends and acquaintances.
