Will We Pay To Obtain News Content On The Internet?

Hell No I say! We bought newspapers and magazines because we knew the cost of printing and paper required this.

As for news content on the Internet advertisers will pay or the readers will evaporate.

Bloggers like me get nothing for putting up content until we get enough visitors to make advertising worthwhile. Many put up donation boxes but to little benefit.

Rupert Murdock’s News Corp has announced intent to eventually charge visitors. I can live without access unless or until they have something that I really need that I can’t get anywhere else.

Murdock must get real since even quality porn can be viewed for free in Cyberspace!

I'm not opposed to the media charging. That is their business.

I am though fully opposed to the Gov taxing the internet.

Let the media charge. The less that can view the mainstream media, makes more readers for us (we the people.)

Although I will not be involved in advertising gimmicks or pays per click on my blog.

Those add things are to irritating to the viewers.

Plus when there's no money involved, I won't be concerned about ratings.
