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!
