Tom Friedman's influence drastically reduced due to TimesSelect

Reader comment on item: Humor: Thomas Friedman's Iraq Predictions

Submitted by Mark James (United States), Jun 15, 2006 at 16:08

Tom Friedman's influence has been drastically reduced ever since the NY Times put all its columnists behind a subscription wall. Tom Friedman said about Time Select: "I hate it. … I feel totally cut off from my audience." See the video of that here: http://tygerland.net/?p=642

So what Pipes said back in 2001 may no longer be as true as it once was: "Thomas Friedman may be the journalist who has the most influence on the way the outside world understands the Arab-Israeli conflict." (The education of Thomas Friedman
