My favorite newspaper shut down a few years ago. I had been reading the Seattle P-I every day since I was 18. It was sad. At the time, I complained that they had never even tried
giving people a way to pay. I also regretted the times I had used an ad blocker to deprive them of the little bit of revenue they were getting from me. They now have an online-only site (http://www.seattlepi.com
), but it's not at the same level as before.
If we want good journalism, someone has to pay. I only wish the newspapers would get together so I could pay one and have access to all.
