Even the sports section is underwhelming. All this for a hefty five dollars–every Sunday. The weekday price is $2.50. That and 25 cents will get you on the subway. And at least you’ll be getting somewhere.
Consortium News averages between 10,000 and 20,000 readers a day. One day in April we had 48,000. If 20,000 readers donated the $5 they may plunk down for one Sunday NYT (it costs $6 outside New York), that would raise $100,000 for one of the leading–and oldest–independent news sites on the web.
So how ’bout it?
