Now’s the time to support print journalism

Print and broadcast journalism is more important than ever, especially in these chaotic times. But broadcast journalism depends on print media for serious, in-depth stories that are able to get a lot more room to breathe on the page than on a short TV report.

That’s why now is the time to support print journalism, and the way to do it is with money. I’ve dumped a couple of my music subscription services and signed on with The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the online edition of The Los Angeles Times.

I could drone on about why print journalism is so important, but I think John Oliver did a much better job. Also, it’s in video form, so you don’t have to strain your eyes looking at lots of words.
