Who actually has a newspaper subscription? [View all]

Post-election, subscriptions to the NYT and WP have skyrocketed as a means of supporting an independent media. Conversely, I've encountered people here who insist that "information should be free". Where do you fit in?

(as for me, I've had a paper subscription to the Times since college, I have digital subscriptions to the NY Daily News and Washington Post, and I periodically buy a temporary subscription to The Guardian.
