Don't look for legacy media outlets to add features like this one...

Don't look for legacy media outlets like The New York Times to allow features like this one -- where the readers get to have an actual say in what reporters are working on.

Which is but one reason why the Times hemorrhaged 35,000 subscribers -- or nearly 4% of their total -- in just 12 months.

Well, the reporting of course plays a part. Being a partisan means being... partisan. The other part, though which will proved to be more heavily weighted is yet to be decided, is that many of the readers support what the present administration is doing.

There is something about shooting yourself in the foot while trying to tread partisan waters that makes keeping up appearances (and subscriptions) difficult. If it weren't dragging me down too, I would be all for it and would offer them ammunition when they run out (the poor dears are terrible shots, murdering pacifist lunatics that they are).
