Never Pay Retail Again!

Find and share coupons for almost any online store.

November 13, 2005

The End.

As you might have noticed, it's not nearly as easy as it used to be to find New York Times op-ed columns (assuming you aren't among the relatively few people who've subscribed to TimesSelect). When I started this, just after TimesSelect kicked off, I could find nearly every column reprinted in many online newspapers. But the Times has been quite diligent about informing their syndicate customers that they were, Darth Vader-style, "altering the deal" on their syndication contracts. These days it's a rare column indeed that slips through the cracks. As such, I'm shuttering Never Pay Retail.

You can still often find legally questionable reprints of NYT columns if you know where to look (here's a hint). And TruthOut.org is still reprinting some of the more liberal columns (they have a fair use disclaimer suggesting that they think they can take on the Deadly Sulzberger Lawyer Squad if it comes to that; I have no idea if they're right).

Finally, a big thanks for all the emails that people sent in just to express appreciation for the site. I got a burst of serotonin from each one.
