Yes, it really is getting WIERD.
I have subscribed to the Wall Street Journal for >30 years - it was the only major newspaper that would actually send me a daily edition to my home address in small town Indiana.
The New York Times would send me advertisements/inducements in my daily US snail mail - but when ever I tried to signup for it, I was told they did not deliver in my area - Go figure!!
I subscribe to several magazines in paper form, mostly because I signed up long before digital editions even existed, but I am now wanting to divest print on paper - just so I have less stuff coming into my home these days. I have stopped the print editions of WSJ and Barron's for that reason.
I did subscribe for the digital version of the Washington Post - mostly at your suggestion and I do like it.
I did not sign up for Apple News - just another $120 bucks a year for stuff I didn't think I would want. If I thought I would get the digital Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post and Wired with an Apple News subsription that would be cash positive for me, so maybe I need to reconsider.
But Amazon keeps wanting me to accept Amazon Music, and Apple keeps yammering at me to accet Apple Music - but I am quite happy with Spotify Premium and don't plan to add other music services.
Apple News is a bit annoying, because even with my paid subscription to WSJ and Washington Post, whenever I try to read and article in Apple News, suggested to me BY Apple News, I can't read the articles without leaving the Apple News App and going to the WSJ or WP apps. Argh! And the New York Times keeps reminding me I only have three article left this months or something. I get the same pitch from the Atlantic.
Like you said, I almost need a spreadsheet to keep track of every thing. I actually did start a spread sheet to try to keep track of the monthly debits in my credit cards for this digital dross.
If you have found a solution, I am all ears!!
