      There are a lot of things about the Times that drive me crazy, but compared to the dreck out there, it's still a different class.  

      To me the point of supporting them is to help keep them in a financially strong enough position that they don't need to worry about their editorial interests being (even more) beholden to their financial interests.  It's if they're really struggling, either for money or legitimacy, that they'll become weaker and more susceptible to well organized right wing pressure.

        of our universally bad newspapers does not mean that it is worthy of support.  There are other ways of getting the news.

        •  Of course (0+ / 0-)

          but I don't see why it isn't a good idea to encourage the Times to be the best paper it can be.  (Notice the complete relativism of that statement!)
