Mark Thompson. “International is particularly important because while the Times’ subscription model has been heralded a success, it is not an area of infinite growth,” writes Joe Pompeo. But “the intention is not to compete in lots of different markets around the world head-to-head with local news providers on local news,” Thompson said.
