I haven't linked to or shared a New York Times link since they fired up their paywall; and I haven't linked to anything on the Memphis Commercial Appeal website since "Carpetbagger Chris" (Peck, editor-in-chief) announced his out-of-town-owned corporation's maximum-profit-driven rag's website pay wall that is even stricter than the Times'.
Yes, I sometimes click a shortened URL and wind up on the CA site without meaning to; but so I don't max out there, I sought out and added to my newsreader RSS feeds from the websites of every TV station in town with a news operation, to go along with the RSS feeds from Memphis' valuable smaller papers with good local coverage.
I'm going to share those with you now in case you want to join this boycott to any degree. Just click on any of the links below to see what stories are typical of the feed. I have chosen, as much as possible, the feeds focusing on local stories, because — let's face it — we can get national and international news from so many sources now, at depths beyond what any Memphis paper does. Here are the feeds. I'll start with links to get Google Reader, which I have used for years, and to a Wikipedia article about newsreaders. You can also read RSS feeds in Internet Explorer and other major browsers and email programs. You don't have to use a newsreader; it's just handier and less time-consuming than navigating many websites to see what's new.
