I subscribed to the Washington Post

The Washington Post has been killing it in recent months. The best U.S. election coverage by far. Even better than Politico. Or the NY Times.


Like all print media the Washington Post are trying to find a way to survive while switching customers to digital.

I paid $9.99 for the first 6 months – digital edition. U.S. Amazon Prime members can get those same 6 months for free. They hope we get addicted to the service over that period … or forget to cancel the subscription. 🙂 Mine renews at $150 / year, more than I’m willing to pay.

It’s easy to bypass the Washington Post paywall if you don’t want to pay. But I’d like to support them.

No doubt the Washington Post will offer me a lower price when I go to cancel my subscription on April 12th, 2017.

I now subscribe to Economist magazine and the Washington Post. The only two old media companies getting cash from Rick McCharles. So far.
