Disappointed About Kindle Newspaper Options

I am taking a journalism class this semester as a way to ease back into the academic world and finish up my degree.  Part of the class is to stay on top of the news, which I am generally good about.  I listen to the BBC World Service, NPR, and have a subscription to The Economist.  But I do not read a daily newsprint newspaper.

I'm not overly excited about the idea of subscribing to a paper edition of The Washington Post or New York Times and I'm also not a big fan of reading the paper on a computer screen.  I was hoping this might be a good push to motivate me to pick up a Kindle.

Unfortunately from reading the reviews of the New York Times on Amazon's Kindle store, it appears that the Kindle edition is abridged.  I could understand that some photographs and perhaps even charts wouldn't translate well to the Kindle edition, but it turns out that they don't even publish all of the stories in the Kindle edition.  That really disappoints me as I'm not going to buy a Kindle and pay the somewhat expensive monthly subscription charge for an abridged edition of the newspaper.

If they change that in the future I will be a customer, but for now I think I'll stick with the web edition.
