The N.Y. Times says it will be charging for some of its content next year. I have no problem with that if the cost is reasonable. I think we need good solid news organizations as relying on blogs for news is the equivalent of listening to talk radio. That said, I’ve experienced old line newspapers that still try to charge outlandish subscription prices. When industries undergo dramatic change, most of the old guard fail to make the jump. They’re like the old lady in the infomercial “help…I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”.
At first look it may sound too greedy
But to many news sites are seedy.
If charging a fee
Be the best you can be
Or you’ll find that we’re not all that needy.
