Dear LA Times: I dislike your Facebook ad…

Via on Apr 3, 2011

Personally, I dislike your FB ad. I’d like you all to put up a reasonable paywall for frequent readers. We’d like to support quality original investigative journalism with our digital subscriptions.

Facebook is in talks with major corporate media about pulling their content into FB, leaving other sites to wither or pay up if we want to connect with you, our readers. Want to stay connected before the curtain drops?

    Elephant is like the comic section of the LA Times.

      I agree. And pay $1/month for what you read, if you want to read more than 3 articles a day—so you can leave more anonymous comments—and we'll have dough to hire an editor and improve. ~ Waylon Lewis

    • The LA Times is elephant journal's cat litter box liner…
