which is the Spotify question.

As to #2, I'm actively paying for access to Fox News. I won't do that.

As to #1 - If I'm not buying the books at the bookstore (and others aren't either) the store will stop carrying the books. I don't pay to support Oprah or Bill O'Reilly by shopping at a bookstore which carries books I choose not to purchase.

As to #3 - from an educational perspective - I think books by Hitler should be available. I'd much rather the library purchase one copy which many can read, than that everyone go out and buy one.

Barnes and Noble sells both kinds of books. kimbutgar Jan 2022 #1

Good post. I agree. Buckeyeblue Jan 2022 #27
Would you shop at a bookstore that carried a LOT of copies of a book called Scrivener7 Jan 2022 #8
And yet if you listen to Spotify it is very possible to have no idea they even carry Joe Rogan. cinematicdiversions Jan 2022 #9

Look I don't have cable. But everyone who does literally is giving money to Fox News. cinematicdiversions Jan 2022 #12
You have a point. Fox has been chipping away at it for a long time and Scrivener7 Jan 2022 #22
You're asserting an equivalence between Bill O'Reilly and Oprah? milestogo Jan 2022 #11
Whaaaaa, leave Spotify alone! Whaaaaaa. FSogol Jan 2022 #13
But Spotify is not a bookstore in Rogan's case, it is the publisher. tinrobot Jan 2022 #14
That is a fair point of view. And I disagree with them paying for any exclusive content. cinematicdiversions Jan 2022 #17

It's a moot point about Spotify for me since they do not support lossless files. totodeinhere Jan 2022 #20
