What would you substitute for the New York Times?
As most of you have heard, the New York Times has begun charging for unlimited access to their online site. You can view up to 20 stories a month for free, but after that (with some exceptions), you're going to have to pay--a minimum of $195/year after the introductory promotion. (The Times says it will be offering a discounted academic rate, but the details have not yet been announced.)
I am a regular reader of the online Times, and I like it, but I'm not sure it's $195/year better than the non-pay sites that are available. (I pay for the Wall Street Journal, but, for a business law professor, that's a slightly different issue.) Therefore, I'm posing the following question to our readers: if you had to substitute another newspaper's free site for the New York Times, which would it be?
