The recent excellent investigative reporting by the Tennessean actually lured me back to subscribing. Today I discovered something new--I have to pay for archived articles. I'm a subscriber--why should I have to pay for archived articles? I know Gannett has to recoup its expenses somehow, but maybe they ought to sell free archive access as a benefit of subscribing?
However, it was apparent yesterday they may not have the whole subscribing thing down since we got a card asking us to subscribe. The money is coming out of my checking account and the paper magically appears in the drive every morning---I'd call that subscribing.
Interestingly the paper is using the same NewsBank service the library does--and I'm not charged if I utilize their web site: http://www.library.nashville.org/Index.html.
We are delighted you have decided to purchase an article from our archive.
