St. Petersburg, err, Tampa Bay Times, Pravda Florida keeps falling. Unfortunately, our local rag, the Lakeland Ledger, has picked up many columnists columns from the TB Times. If it weren’t for the local section of the Ledger, I’d cancel in a heartbeat. (They, the Ledger, charge to read on-line if you’re not a subscriber)

Most likely they place a restriction based on IP address. You can probably use a free IP Address mask like http://www.anchorfree.com/ and not bother paying for content that has no intrinsic value.

When you’ve used up your free articles on an IP address, just log off and back in again to your VPN and you’ll look like another visitor to the website.

The Ledger is at least as politically skewed as the Times.

Few “news reports” are truly factual.Almost all are “opinion” or otherwise slanted.They seem to be incapable of straight news.

If you want to learn about local events, look to foreign news sources, or monitor police/emergency frequencies.

The print press companies backed the wrong technology for the last few decades.
Instead of becoming more ethical, trustworthy and less political, they went full on full BS for marketing purposes.
Have you noticed that newspaper stands now mostly direct potential buyers inside?

I'm shocked that anyone still subscribes to them at all!
