Who pays for newspapers online?

I hate paying for news.

The MPLS star tribune gives you 20 articles a month. But I am finding it harder to limit it to 20.

What makes me mad is the price. $52.00 a year seems a bit steep considering they don't need to print or deliver the paper. And I would read less then I would with a real paper. THEN after the INTRO price It goes up to 2.00 a week. so 100.00 a year

I don't want to go off on a rant here......so I will ask

Who is paying for a paper, magazine etc. Things that you could get other places.

Not ESPN insider or online only content.

Thanks-Yes I know I am cheap

That's where advertising revenue comes in. Plenty of online news sources don't charge.

Newspapers destroyed themselves. Journalism was abandoned. They produced flaming shit in a bucket for decades, and even the bucket itself is now obsolete.
