The New Yorker Ponders Pay-One-Price Plan

The New Yorker editor David Remnick said the magazine is considering offering its various platforms via a pay-one-price plan, where subscribers would get the print edition and every electronic platform — Kindle, iPad — for one monthly price, or, for those who still kick it old-school, just the print edition for an obviously lower price, reported.
