Print/Magazine/Newspaper Subscriptions....

Recommended Posts

Do you have any?

 

I have a subscription to The Australian newspaper and I just got one to Monster Children.

 

Recently I've started reading The Economist, which I like, so I'm considering subscribing to that as well.

 

 

But.......with all the information that is freely available on the Internet, is it even worth it for news based print publications?

 

Thoughts?

I'm not in Australia, but for news I listen to the radio. Usually college radio and Pacifica Radio.

 

My print subscriptions include Extra! from fair.org and Z Magazine from zmag.org/zmag.

Get blog rss feeds instead, even the New York Times has an iphone app and their website is saving their ass.

Alot of print publications are going belly up now because of the cost of cutting down trees and making ink for them then shipping and delivering said product.

Also blogs and websites update real time and you don't have to wait till tomorrow or for next moths issue for news.

call me a hippie, but I let all my subscriptions go and now buy them from the local news stand to help keep them from closing.
