Now that is what is called targeted advertising

Ok we know the New York Times is tank­ing in value. You need to some­how increase read­er­ship, where do you advertise?

Why MSNBC of course! Although I think the Morn­ing Joe audi­ence is likely to be less excited by the prospect then the views of the rest of the lineup.

Update: Mas­sive Irony alert. Do you remem­ber this:

I can’t think of the New York Times with­out think­ing of my favorite writer Glenn Reynolds. Of course he is not a pro­fes­sional writer but a law pro­fes­sor who blogs for at Instapun­dit I am one of his many blog chil­dren. I never for­get that when I started read­ing him in 2001 he used to have a quote on the top of his page say­ing “The New York Times of Blog­gers.” I remem­ber when he removed from his site think­ing its absence enhanced his reputation.

The day the New York Times can call itself the Instapun­dit of News­pa­pers is the day its stock will not be tank­ing, its build­ing will not need to be mort­gaged and will be worth read­ing again.

I just went to Instapun­dit and saw an ad for sub­scrip­tions to the New York Times. That the times hopes to improve it’s bot­tom line by adver­tis­ing with Glenn brings a huge smile to my face.

Of course he is not a professional writer but a law professor who blogs for at Instapundit I am one of his many blog children. I never forget that when I started reading him in 2001 he used to have a quote on the top of his page saying “The New York Times of Bloggers.” I remember when he removed from his site thinking its absence enhanced his reputation.
