As we've snarked, since advertising can not support a newspaper alone and people no longer pay for the product they consume, newspapers will like musicians have to "adapt" and make T-shirts. And do they have, a lot of the alternative media sites support their business by selling water, t-shirts, wallets and all sorts of things. Adding a dash of creative snark to it, the Los Angeles Times (top left) showed off their "we will not be shut up" T-shirt on Twitter after having been barred from the White House press briefings.

Only a few tweets down the thread, Propublica the fiercely independent news org, pointed out that they had already done such shirts. "We said steal our stories, not our shirts," and so a fresh Badlander was born.
