From the election on Nov. 8 through Saturday, the Times has seen “a net increase of approximately 132,000 paid subscriptions to our news products,” the media giant said in an exclusive statement to CNBC.
“This represents a dramatic rate of growth, 10 times, the same period one year ago,” according to the statement issued ahead of a CNBC interview Tuesday with New York Times CEO Mark Thompson.
This, despite — or, perhaps, because of — Donald Trump’s repeated lie that the Times is “failing”, that the paper is biased against him, or that they’re “treating him badly”.
On a similar note, “Hamilton” broke Broadway records for the highest-grossing week of shows and the highest average admission price after Trump called for its boycott.
