No time for the Times

Hi all,

No more NY Times. I would like to say that I was so sick of the biased coverage that I had to cancel my subscription. However, the truth is that since I started working three jobs I don't have the time to read the Times and the Economist - and quite frankly - the Economist is a much better publication with broader coverage of issues and locations and a bias toward intelligent pro-capitalist coverage. In short, I am learning a lot more from the Economist than from the Times. Most of it I promptly forget, but I am going for the long-term cumulative effect.

Aside from all this - the Times was getting stolen several times a week and it can be had free online... So why pay for biased news coverage with limited scope and a lack of intellectual and political responsibility?
