glacier (the tc publisher) asks for $5/mo. pledge from readers for their free papers:

 
 

 

I no longer get their free papers because they have put less than zero effort into journalism for the last decade.  They also took a very good set of websites and made them useless for finding stories.

 

If they want support they need a lot more stories and a lot more of them have to dig into the muck of local government and report on it

 

The loss of all the Glacier free papers would be a net benefit for society.

There really isn’t much of substance in these publications, is there?

I think you had a typo in that sentence, I think you meant "any" and not "much"

You say these things yet we all quote, share and discuss Black Press articles here on VV constantly.

 

Curious.

You wonder how local media in general can continue publishing when ad revenue has gone close to zero. I wouldn't be surprised if most just didn't shut down and ride this out unless they can apply the 75% wage cost benefit.
