Going solo means building a system
That's sad about the Washington Post projected to lose ~$100M this year. When I used to live and work around its neighborhood, I appreciated the local news, including how many DC school buses were stalled how many hours in the latest 3" deep snowstorm. By contrast, when I moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1987, I subscribed to the print version of the Wall Street Journal, along with the Albuquerque Journal, delivered mornings to my doorstep, and available in news stands through the city. Now I get the Washington Post online, but spend more time on the online Wall Street Journal. I unsubscribed a few months ago from the New York Times because it has become too careless with facts and less helpful for my career.
Nowadays, for quick reads of breaking news, I get The Bulwark, The Dispatch, and especially The Rebooting as you cover news central to my career. Thank you and keep it up! Yes, I'll subscribe when the time comes.
