news for nothing

March 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

I wish they only put trash news behind paywalls. I mean, without the NY Times links, would there even be a Huffington Post?  I don’t mind paying for good information, and the NYT is one of a handful of truly good information sources. If the rest follow suit and make a paywall, then this will work for them. If not, or if people decide that the NY Daily News for free is the same value as the NYT for some nominal fee, then this will fail. I am betting the paywall won’t last and Arianna Huffington will get her free news dept back. And I’m not sure I’d call that a win.
