The New York Times

Newspaper

The New York Times is an American daily newspaper founded and continuously published in New York City since 1851. Although it remains both the largest local metropolitan newspaper in the United States as well as third largest overall behind The Wall Street Journal and USA Today, the weekday circulation of the paper has nonetheless fallen precipitously in recent years to fewer than one million copies daily for the first time since the 1980s.

  • In the entertainment pages of every big-city daily moviegoers searching out the playing times of Disney’s Fantasia were also apprised of the latest X-rated movies: The Stewardesses (“Presented in the most realistic film process ever developed”), Glass Houses (“The Story of the Sensuous Family!”), Boys in the Sand (“All male cast”); Together, the notorious European orgy movie (“See what your children can show you about love”), showing on twenty screens in all five boroughs of New York. Rex Reed called the new western Straw Dogs a “blood bath for sadists.” Clayton Riley of the New York Times called another unpredecentedly violent feature, Clockwork Orange, a “criminally irresponsible horror show.” But that was just one man’s opinion; the Times also ran a review by Vincent Canby that called it “a disorienting but humane comedy.”
