The Times is buying up the most popular news source in the United States, which it has historically done with the exception of the Wall Street Journal, according to a review of company documents obtained by POLITICO.
The paper, which is the most trusted news source among the roughly 2.3 billion Americans who read its pages every day, plans to buy up all of the major news organizations in the U.S. in the coming year, the documents show.
And it plans to sell those assets to make up for its loss in the market for print advertising revenue.
The purchases will add more than $2 billion to the newspaper’s annual print advertising income and help it expand its audience beyond its loyal readers, the sources said.
The purchase also is a big boost for the newspaper, which was in the red in 2016, after a series of expensive advertising buys to compete with the rising dominance of online news outlets such as BuzzFeed and The Huffington Post.
The Times is now planning to spend $1.3 trillion on advertising, the source said, adding that it is investing $500 million in the company’s advertising operation.
The newspaper, with a circulation of 1.2 million, will now spend more than double its annual advertising spend of $1 billion in the next five years.
The newsroom is now being run in partnership with a nonprofit called the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, a nonprofit that aims to promote journalism by offering scholarships to young reporters to help them pursue their work.
The Times has hired dozens of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists, including Pulitzer Prize winners and Pulitzer Prize finalists, and has launched a new program called The Editors, which offers fellowships to new reporters.
The purchase will help the newspaper continue to expand its coverage of the world, the report said.
“This is not just a news business, but a cultural enterprise, and the newspaper has long had a long history of giving voice to stories of the most pressing concerns of the American people,” the report says.
The acquisition includes The New York Times Company, which owns The New Yorker and The Washington Post, and which has also been the publisher of The Wall Street Review and the Times’s online edition of the New York Post.
In the future, it could include The Wall House, which the Times purchased in 2012 for $1 million.
The sale comes after the paper announced that it was changing its print advertising strategy.
Last year, it sold The New Republic to AOL for $3.1 billion.
The deal also included a large stake in The Atlantic, the online newspaper that is owned by the Washington Post Co., which has been criticized for its coverage.
The Atlantic had an editorial line that included a call for Trump to resign, which angered many liberals.
In the wake of the election, the Times said it would no longer run negative political stories.
The paper also had to pay $13 million to settle a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.
The NYT has long focused on attracting new audiences.
In a series on how it manages content, the newspaper wrote that it “is constantly looking for new ways to create a more compelling, more engaging experience for readers,” and that it has “a growing network of content producers and publishers, including The Atlantic and the New Republic.”
The NYT also announced a new digital subscription service that will be available on Roku devices, Apple TVs, Apple and Android smartphones, Amazon Fire tablets and other devices starting in early 2017.
The move comes as the Times faces mounting criticism for its treatment of Trump, whose approval rating dropped to historic lows last week after he criticized the media during a speech to the Republican National Convention.
Last week, the paper said it was working on a plan to cover Trump in a way that would allow it to maintain a positive outlook.
