Yet other subscription... great
This combines about 8 other subscriptions into one for me, and saves a ton of money. Definitely not complaining.

A subscription service for out-of-date legacy media is something legacy media would want… but not consumers.
Philosophically, I agree with the move.

It disincentives click bait, and encourages content to make money off of time spent reading instead.
