I get it, but it is one of the things I try to promote. Pay for actual


journalism if and when you can. It is so rare and at risk in this day and age. The only way we are going to get content that is actually edited and worth reading is to pay for it.

I know from a reliable source that the Athletic was a godsend to one sports reporter for a pro team that I follow (I worked with one of his close friends on a business matter). This writer left a major newspaper that had become entirely ad and web comment driven where he was miserable. At the Athletic he was able to finally research and write again. His content is great. I'd much rather my money go to that effort than to save money and get bombarded with ads so someone can try to generate inflammatory click bait.

I understand that everyone has different budget issues so I am not ignoring that. But I try to encourage Athletic subscriptions because I think the cost is reasonable and the purpose is worthwhile. Ok, rant over.
