Krugman's blog

The day that the NYT ends Times Select Paul Krugman's blog launches:
Introducing This Blog - Paul Krugman - Op-Ed Columnist - New York Times Blog

...For now, though, the important thing is to realize that the story of modern America is, in large part, the story of the fall and rise of inequality.
I don't believe the official story that Krugman played no role in the end of Times Select.

I suspect that back when the NYTimes went "Select", cutting off Krugman and Frank Rich was the feature, not the bug; they were a unique thorn in the side of the Bush Administration, at a time when the NYTimes was using its news sections to promote the Bush agenda (cf. Judith Miller, etc.)

Now that Bush and his party are out of the picture, whatever deals were cut, formally or informally, with Sulzburger are now doubtless null and void.
