Old York Times (New York Times nickname)

The New York Times is a newspaper that has been pubished in New York City since 1851. Conservative radio talk show host Michael Savage believes that the newspaper has an old, tired liberal slant, and has nicknamed the newspaper Old York Times on air and in his books, such as The Savage Nation (2002).

The nickname Old York Times has been used by others, but mostly by conservative Savage listeners.


Wikipedia: The New York Times
The New York Times (NYT) is an American daily newspaper, founded and continuously published in New York City since September 18, 1851. It has won 112 Pulitzer Prizes, more than any other news organization.

The paper’s print version remains the largest local metropolitan newspaper in the United States and third-largest newspaper overall, behind The Wall Street Journal and USA Today. Following industry trends, its weekday circulation has fallen to fewer than one million daily since 1990. Nicknamed for years as “The Gray Lady”, “The New York Times” is long regarded within the industry as a national “newspaper of record”. It is owned by The New York Times Company. Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr., now in its fifth generation whose family (Ochs-Sulzberger) has controlled the paper since 1896, is both the paper’s publisher and the company’s chairman.

HE calls The New York Times the OLD York Times, as if that’s a besmirching comment.  What if it was The OLD York Times?  What does that mean?

@DennisDMZ Yep, the “Old York Times” (Michael Savage), is no longer viable & resembles a wobbling old skeleton on the way to the graveyard.
