Bostwiki compares the New York Times and Washington Post (like the Mets v. Nationals)

Bostwiki offers a comparison of the New York Times and the Washington Post.

The New York Times has more subscribers (including in print), the Washington Post has more content, especially fed to social media, and more opinion pieces from outside contributors.

He also notes that while the New York Times is a publicly traded company, you can’t by class B shares, so in many ways it is more like a private company (like the Post under Bezos).

Both have been guilty of overplaying wokeness lately. The NYTimes overdid it on a piece on radicalization, and the Post got sued (although the suit was dismissed) by the Sandmann family for careless reporting on incomplete information on the Covington Kids mess.

Bostwiki says that the Post and NYTimes are still our best news institutions.  (Maybe LA?) 

So Extinction Rebellion will target them both.
Well, you could compare Subverse, News2Share, and my little DADT operation – they’re all different and started very differently and wind up covering similar things.
