Arthur Sulzberger has told the Israeli daily Haaretz at the World Economic Forum in Davos that “I really don’t know whether we’ll be printing the New York Times in five years, and you know what? I don’t care either.”

The CBS humourist Craig Ferguson‘s response: “I heard the publisher of The New York Times is afraid that his newspaper won’t exist in five years because people get all their news online. I don’t know what’s going to happen if The New York Times disappears… I’ll have to line the bottom of my bird cage with a laptop.”
