I really like a lot of what ProPublica is doing. I think the not-for-profit model is a good idea, if not the future of professional journalism. And I don’t just say this because I met Paul Steiger in his last week at the WSJ.
But their daily email is impossible to read. It’s like a poorly designed web page, not an email. I’d even rather they email me their whole web page. I’ve subscribed since they went live, and I still don’t understand exactly where to look for what, and what’s original material.
I’m officially unsubscribing, and just reading their posts in my RSS reader instead.
