I give money to the Washington Post because (A) it's dumbly cheap through Amazon (B) one of my high school friends is a reporter there last I checked (C) they occasionally do good work. I give money to the Wall Street Journal because (A) they pay their journalists well to dig into things they fucking well feel like (B) they paywall the shit out of everything and it's super-annoying not being able to read their stuff. Their editorial board is awful, unspeakably so, but the NYT hasn't been much better.

And the NYT saw Jayson Blair, doubled down with Judith Miller and then hired Brett Stephens. Fuck the NYT.
