    What are your thoughts on Last Week Tonight? John Oliver and team seem to do pretty good overviews on their chosen topics.

    Newspapers should get on crowdfunding, I’d pay $10 a month to keep a quality paper going.

    How about a quality film review site? (If you aren’t already.)


  • Most local papers I’m familiar with offer digital subscriptions at a discounted rate. However, the advertisers prefer the printed product, as there is a greater chance readers will see the ads.

  • But ad revenue has plummeted, so the advertisers are not paying anywhere near what they used to.

  • I can assure you that the vast majority of the people reading this site are *not* subscribers.

  • I’ve never seen an actual episode (though I do have an HBO Now subscription). There’s just no time.

  • Not inconsistent with what I’ve written. Ad revenue for newspapers is falling because the print circulations are down and it’s much easier to circumvent the ads in digital form.

    Yeah, I’m just trying to nudge. Especially when a commenter has said that they’d happily pay for quality content. :-)

    I am a subscriber. This is the site I throw at people who think Hollywood is pandering to “SJWs,” maybe 1 out of 100 will realize how silly they’re being.
