Why is this modded funny? There are many examples like this. The NYT and the WSJ are among the best original sources out there. I believe if they disappear just because of this "I want everything on the internet for free" mentality, the overall quality of news on the internet - strike that - the quality of news everywhere would suffer greatly. They do the real work and don't just sit in their armchairs and watch some aggregator. The information these papers provide and the quality in which they write it up and present it to us is easily worth it. Take the price for the paper version, subtract paper, ink, delivery cost and whatnot and I'll pay it gladly if that enables them to maintain their overall quality of journalism. This mindset that something has to be free if it's digital is really annoying. Not all news are automatically put online and spread everywhere.
