The liberals in Washington see the answer as government funding. The rest of see it as a bad product, courtesy of far left editorial boards, versus the information variety of the internet. For with the exception of The Wall Street Journal it appears that people continue to vote with their pocketbook.

Then again what did those newspapers expect? They all supported the teacher unions and their failing public schools systems. They all supported open boarders, bi-lingual education and “sanctuary city” laws. The laws that helped bring in and keep tens of millions of illegal immigrants that can not speak or read English. Did any of them speak out against the gangster rap hip-hop drug culture that is so inherently anti-education? So just what kind of client base did they think that they were building anyway? You reap what you sow Pinch Sulzberger. You reap what you sow.
