I just subscribed to the Washington Post

I don't care why Bezos owns it and I don't care how evil he is. I am responding to the courage it took to stand up to blackmail.

3. In an interview he described how he has used technology

To improve it, especially financially. But as a long time subscriber, I would say it is continuing the high quality investigative reporting it always was known for, though it has had to cut back on its international presence.

5. My subscription to NYT expired last Nov.

After some sketchy NYT anonymous stories favorable to drumpf, I didn't renew with them but chose the WaPo. Glad I did!!

10. Glad to hear it. They need subscriptions from people like us to stay in business.

And we need professional reporters like at the Post to be able to continue doing their jobs.
