      #3 is of major interest. Commenting is difficult on that site so I’ll say it here: While access is vital, old media also are in collusion with politicians on two things that make a difference regarding money, without which no media engine runs, new or old – (1) legal notices (it’s a crime that they are still largely tethered, for outrageous sums, to “newspapers” that have fewer readers than other sources which could and should be running them instead) and (2) tax rates (here in WA, print operations pay a fraction of the taxes online-only operations pay – and our market-leading news publication shares a tax classification with advertising agencies and gambling operations; I wouldn’t mind paying that higher rate as long as the environmentally-unfriendlier physical-product-producing news orgs paid it too!) – Tracy
