The New York Times dumps Apple News, says contained model isn’t ‘healthy’

《纽约时报》终止与苹果新闻合作,称其内含模式“不健康”

《纽约时报》与Apple News的关系一直存在争议,在Apple News+去年推出时,《纽约时报》拒绝支持该服务,并公开警告媒体避开该服务。当时,该公司首席执行官马克·汤普森(Mark Thompson)对路透社(Reuters)表示,他担心“我们的新闻会被混在其他人的新闻中”。


现在它也在删除免费内容。《纽约时报》网站为其内容提供了多种付费层次,最新统计显示,其订户超过500万。在一份给员工的备忘录中,首席运营官Meredith Kopit Levien表示,苹果新闻的沙箱模式不符合《纽约时报》的标准,这种模式不提供返回《纽约时报》网站的直接路径。


《纽约时报》经常出现在谷歌新闻中,但该服务只是收集链接,把读者送到最初的网站,时报可以在那里提供订阅。Apple News在iPhone、iPad或Mac应用程序中提供完整的文章和视频,但不提供相关网站的链接。


在今年4月的苹果季度财报电话会议上,蒂姆·库克(Tim Cook)宣布,Apple News的用户已突破1.25亿大关,但苹果拒绝公布有关新闻+订阅量的数据。News+的设计和可用性一直受到批评。据Digiday报道,在推出9个月后,News+一直在苦苦挣扎。

The New York Times has had something of a contentious relationship with Apple News, declining to support Apple News+ when it launched last year and publicly warning publications to steer clear of the service. At the time, CEO Mark Thompson told Reuters he was leery of "our journalism being scrambled in a kind of Magimix (blender) with everyone else's journalism."

And now it's pulling its free content as well. The Times website offers a variety of paid tiers for its content and at last count had more than five million subscribers. In a memo to employees, COO Meredith Kopit Levien said Apple News' sandboxed model, which doesn't offer a direct path back to the New York Times website, "does not fit within (the paper's) parameters."

The New York Times regularly appears in Google News, but that service merely collects links and sends readers to the original site where the Times can offer subscriptions. Apple News presents full articles and videos within the iPhone, iPad, or Mac app, and doesn't offer a link to the referring website.

During Apple's quarterly earnings call in April, Tim Cook announced that Apple News had crossed the 125 million user mark, though Apple has declined to release figures regarding subscriptions to News+, which has undergone criticism for its design and usability. Digiday reported that nine months after its launch, News+ has struggled.
