The thing to understand here is that if you do not pay for the news (reporting), you will get the news someone else has paid for.

See Chomsky/Herman "Manufacturing Consent" for starters.

Journalism costs money, propaganda is free. I would buy more newspapers but the price in the US has gone up dramatically even up to 5 dollars for a newspaper! Who the hell would pay that??? I get most of my news from this wonderful website JapanToday, and Google News.

JT’s Model with ads here and there (not really 邪魔の pop up ones so much) which do not interfere too much is good and costs me nothing - GOOD balance, and hope does not change

Thank you JT
