This is going to hurt them. Web traffic will be down. They will become less relevant over the next few years.

I will take pride in not funding their “journalists”.

I usually look at them too. I used to know someone fairly regularly. Guess I'm getting old and most of my HS acquaintances don't stay out late enough to get one anymore

Cancelled my sub years ago and they still deliver daily. I have called several times to let them know and they still deliver.



The last two houses I've lived in get the advocate delivered daily. I called to let them know I don't I need it and it still gets delivered. Of course I got no where

All I managed to do was give them my cell number so they call me once a month and pitch a service that they are already providing for free

They’re actually going to charge people to go on that abortion of a website?

When is this coming?

The result of this decision will be a few people being told to learn to code a year from now.

Right? They hire recent LSU graduates. Not exactly like they’re bringing in Walter Kronkite

Even that announcement has a glaring mistake in it. Not paying for shite that can’t even be checked before they publish it.

Never looked at it when it was free, so it wont effect me now that they want you to pay.


You should apply for a job there.

It would be great irony if Chicken charged $3.50 per month to subscribe to TD.

I only pay for the actual paper, that is delivered to my home, so I can eat boiled seafood on it. And to read the sports section. The rest of the Advocate is a dumpster fire. No way I’d pay for an online subscription.



I think it was Buddy D who once said, regarding the Times Picayune - "You take out the sports and the funnies, read those, and use the rest of the paper to line a bird cage with"

I wish they'd quit littering my front yard, I've never had a subscription.
