    I don't believe I've ever sat down and read the WSJ.

    Buttt
    DRUDGE REPORT 2009 is my news source (a compilation from other sources).

    this fact illustrates the demand for the wsj is such that it can charge for what others give away for free.

    so, whether their slant is left, right or center, they are doing something right.

    edit: since when did the new york times charge (not simply free registration)?

    I subscribed to the WSJ, and ahh yes, you're right about the The New York Times online, it is free. I didn't know that. I don't know how they can keep that up though unless the quality of their content drops (i.e. from laying off reporters in order to cut costs).

    They used to have the Journal out for free outside the Quad and in Wharton buildings at Penn. That was a nice fringe benefit. That is not a cheap newspaper.

    That was my hobby before I got back online in '04. I used to read and quote it all the time. I actually feel less like I know what's going on now. Although I sure know computers now.
