Many news sites plead with visitors to subscribe, and for my own part I'd like to, but I can't justify more than a few subscriptions.

Yes, that's pretty much my reaction.

If I subscribe to the NY Times, and spend a lot of time reading it, perhaps it is worth the cost. But if I also subscribe to the Washington Post, then I am going to spend less time at the NYTimes. So I should get a discount there.

These newspapers need to come up with some sort of consortium, so that I can subscribe there and have access to several news sites. Since that would require a login, they should be able to work out how to divvy up the subscription based on what I actually read. The way they are currently handling it doesn't work very well.
