I believe in subscriber-funded journalism, and would like to have a paid digital subscription to the NYT, but they're charging too much. If I, living in the bay area, would like to give some dollar-votes to 1-2 international papers, 1-2 national papers, 1-2 regional papers, 1-2 county-level papers, + 1-2 periodicals, 1-2 radio stations & 1-2 TV stations, how can I justify $15 a month for the NYT, unless the NYT happens to be your first choice for international & national & regional & local news?
