I’m a journalist. I work at a newspaper. And I like to have a real, live copy of it every morning to read with my coffee and oatmeal, so I’m not about to cancel my subscription to the Post anytime soon (plus it’s free, and it’s the only employee perk I get, so cut me some slack).
However, I’ve been getting the Star on Sundays, because the Post only prints Monday to Saturday, and suddenly they’ve started delivering it to me free of charge every day of the week. It’s way too much paper, and while I love getting complimentary anything, it means hauling down stacks of it to the recycling bin every few days and is really a waste.
So as of today, I’m cancelling my subscription, and going back to one newspaper a day.
