Overall, I do not entirely dislike the Times. I think some of their layout decisions are questionable, but their coverage is mostly excellent. I wish photos and videos were more prominent because they are not fully utilizing the online medium. I don’t read the paper-version of the Times, but I do hope the content is varied between the two media.
I would not pay for the LATimes online, nor will I continue to keep track of it after this semester. I didn’t find it very enthralling or even terribly interesting, but I am glad I was able to cover it this semester. As a major West coast news source, it’s interesting to see how they balance their content.
The entertainment box at the very top of the page will annoy me forever though.
