As we all know, traditional print media has been struggling of late. Being an avid consumer of online information, one of the first things I do when I move to a new place is check out the local newspaper online. This has worked fine up until now. At our new digs, the local paper does have an online version, but you cannot view much more than headlines without buying a subscription. Okay, I figured I'd check to see how much they wanted, it couldn't be much, right? Hah. For 12 months of online only access, they want me to pay $144. Yeah, right. Sorry, I know it's becoming financially difficult to run a paper, but requiring me to pay $144 for local news is not a solution to that problem.
