...even though I HATE how much "resubscribe!" spam they've tossed at me. Maybe I can strike a deal with them somehow. Stop the spam and I will pay you money to do your darndest to do good journalism.

scrottie is right that this is a case where an e-reader will make some sense. It would be more pleasant for reading the news, and would lead to less accumulated paper everywhere making me feel guilty (why I wound up canceling the subscription in Texas).

But if you have strong alternate opinions about news sources most deserving of my money, I'll still listen for a couple more days before making my decision.

I have an online subscription for like $4 a month. Maybe you can get a "student" rate? I figure it's nice to support a place that does some independent in-depth journalism.

I'm not super-concerned about the price at this stage, thankfully, and agree that it's important to put non-advertiser money towards journalism!

Set up a spam trap email address and never look at.

As to news sources, The Economist has undue influence on me, even though I pay a bunch for the paper and online subscription. An online-only subscription is cheaper.

yeah, somewhat sadly the NYT is the best/only comprehensive general interest American news source out there today.

The Guardian! They are doing so much important work. Good investigative journalism, based in the UK but with an excellent US team on the ground, and owned by a trust, not a for-profit entity. The NYT is problematic, see this story for instance.
