A self-defeating announcement from NPR, via Romenesko:

Memo from NPR's director of morning programming

To: ME list; Davar Ardalan; Jenni Bergal

Subject: saving money

As of April 1 NPR is cancelling all newspaper subscriptions. We are making some arrangments to get the Wall Street Journal either on line or hard copy. You have until tomorrow to appeal this if there is a solid reason why you should be exempt. This is a cost saving measure company wide.

We want to hear what you think about this article. Submit a letter to the editor or write to letters@theatlantic.com.
